The Honorable Noma Diane Gurich, Oklahoma’s newest State Supreme Court Justice, was the speaker for this year’s Constitution Day luncheon at Rose State College, at 11:45 a.m. Sept. 17, in the Student Center Main Dining Room on campus. “The Constitutional Power of the Judiciary” was the title of Gurich’s speech.
Justice Gurich is the third woman in history to be appointed to the state’s highest court. With more than 24 years as a judge, The Hon. Gurich was named the 2011 Judge of the Year by the Oklahoma Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates, and is a three-time Journal Record Honoree for Woman of the Year (2005, 2008 and 2011).
The Rose State College Foundation’s James F. Howell Country Lawyer Lectureship sponsored Gurich’s talk. The purpose of the program is to help the Rose State community, and visitors, better appreciate the U.S. Constitution’s place in the history and law of the country.
