Patrick French, 30
Command Center Supervisor, Cox Communications, Tulsa
French supervises the daily operations of Cox Communication’s multifaceted field services division, but he also demonstrates leadership in his volunteer activities. The Bartlesville native serves as director of the Tulsa Pride celebration every June as well as on a number of boards serving LGBT communities. His goals, he says, are pretty simple – to continue working with a company he enjoys and to make Tulsa Pride a vehicle for positive change in Oklahoma. “Tulsa Pride can help to create an environment in our state which embraces people of all backgrounds and values their individual contributions to our society,” he says.
