 J. Kevin Stitt is the 28th governor of Oklahoma. Governor Stitt is leading the state with a vision to become Top Ten in critical categories, from government accountability to job growth, infrastructure, education and more.
Governor Stitt is an entrepreneur and businessman who founded Gateway in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 2000. Starting Gateway with only $1,000 and a computer, he grew his business into one of the top 20 mortgage lenders and servicers in the nation, operating in more than 40 states and servicing more than $20 billion in residential mortgages. Stitt led Gateway through a merger with Farmers Exchange Bank in 2018 and formed Gateway First Bank, which is headquartered in Jenks, Oklahoma, and operates more than 160 mortgage centers across the country and employs more than 1,400 people.

Three Ways Parents Can Refocus Family Life During the Pandemic

 by Stacy McNeiland
 Spring break is just around the corner, and while that final hiatus in the school year normally brings with it hope for sandy beaches or snowy hills, the sentiment this year is notably different. 

It’s hard to believe that spring break 2020 marked the real beginning of the Covid crisis in America. For many, that fateful week in March began a long and unwanted vacation from life as we knew it. Schools let out for the break, and many did not return for the remainder of the school year. Kids said goodbye to their friends, not knowing that it would be months before they would say hello again. 

As I think back to this time last year, I am struck by how much we didn’t know of what was to come, and by how much our families and, in particular, our kids have suffered under the tremendous weight of the pandemic.
