Dr. Joe Pierce knows the world of education. His passion for learning, commitment to students and enthusiasm for innovation are the perfect combination to lead Oklahoma City’s first downtown elementary school.

The OKC Midtown Rotary Club was chartered in 2009 with the goal of involving younger professionals in the service, fellowship and ideals of Rotary International. We also really like art in OKC and do what we can when we can to rock it out.
