Tulsa Press Club & Benevolent Society annually recognizes Tulsa-area civic, business and professional leaders that made headlines over the past year for their unselfish contributions to the growth, prosperity, people and culture of Tulsa and the surrounding areas.
In August of this year, Baker completed two terms in office, serving the largest tribal nation in the United States. He leaves a lasting impact on the health and economic prosperity of the Cherokee people.
“We could not think of an individual who has better embodied the traits of a Headliner over the past several years than Chief Baker,” Claire Johnson, president of the Tulsa Press Club, said. “With his signature achievement, the new Cherokee Nation Outpatient Health Center opening this fall, it’s also a timely way to honor Chief Baker’s service to the Cherokee people and to all of Oklahoma.”
Baker will join a prestigious list of Headliners of the Year, including honorees, such as W.K. Warren (1956), W.G. Skelly (1957), Dan P. Holmes (1973), John C. Leake (1983), Peggy Helmerich (1987), Henry Zarrow (1991), Maxine Horner (1995), Roxana Lorton (1997), Jack Zarrow (1999), Robert Lorton (2000), Kathy Taylor (2004), Henry Bellmon (2006), Bill and Kathy LaFortune (2017) and Wilma Mankiller, who was honored in 2007, along with many other Oklahomans who have made the lives of their fellow statesmen better through civic duty and dedication to service above self.
