Change never comes easy, but we couldn’t be more thankful for having such a good friend.
This week, as many of us are welcoming the new owners of the Tulsa world we would be remiss to not take the time to truly thank our good friends, the Lorton family, for their commitment to the Tulsa community over the last 100 years. It is difficult to measure in any quantifiable way the positive impact the Lorton family has made in the past century on this great city. Their generosity is immeasurable, whether it be in monetary contributions to hundreds of worthwhile causes, or in supporting numerous nonprofit organizations ranging from the arts to education, mental health, to racial reconciliation.
I congratulate the Lorton family on the sale of the newspaper and welcome the Berkshire Hathaway group to our community; the BH organization has a wonderful reputation and I have no doubt they will become good Tulsans, just as the Lorton’s have been, and will continue to be.
