Douglass alum, Horace Stevenson inducted into the Foundation for Oklahoma City Public Schools' Wall of Fame

The Foundation for Oklahoma City Public Schools inducted three new members into their Wall of Fame on November 11 at the organization’s Humanitarian Awards . The 2014 honorees are Edward H. Cook, David G. Fitzgerald and Horace Stevenson. They will join 68 other alumni and community leaders who have been inducted since the Wall of Fame was created in 1985.

Horace Stevenson

Horace Stevenson was a student at Dunbar Elementary and a graduate of Douglass High School. He has been in the service business since a very young age, starting at Jack Sussy’s in the late 1950’s. His dream was to own his own restaurant, which he did for several years prior to joining the McDonald’s corporation. Stevenson purchased his first McDonald’s franchise in 1987 and since then has purchased seven more in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, including the first McDonald’s in North Tulsa. As a franchisee, he has served as a mentor to many young people over the years. His love of golf led him to establish the Little Giant Golf Tournament which caters to 200 participants from all over the United States. The Horace Stevenson Foundation was created to raise funds for junior golf programs and education. In his nomination Stevenson was referred to as “a silent leader” of the African American community, stepping up on numerous occasions to help out when needed
