Pugh selected as Achievers Under 40 honoree

State Senator Adam Pugh has been named to the Journal Record’s 2017 class of Achievers Under 40.  The Edmond Republican is one of 39 recipients who were selected this year from 139 submissions from across the state.

“It’s an incredible honor to be selected to such an innovative and dynamic group of community leaders in Oklahoma,” Pugh said.  “I appreciate the opportunity to represent Edmond and the State Senate in this year’s class of honorees and I’m thankful to the citizens of our district for their support.”

Before beginning his term in the state Senate in November of last year, Pugh served in the Air Force as an Air Battle Manager, where he flew on combat support missions in the global war on terror.  After leaving the military, Pugh has continued to work in the aerospace industry for some of the leading aerospace companies in the world.   He and his wife, Sarah, have two young daughters and they are active members of Life Church in Edmond.  Pugh is also involved with the Edmond Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Edmond Young Professionals, Whiz Kids, and the Food Bank of Oklahoma.

The honorees of the 2017 Achievers Under 40 class will be recognized at a luncheon on May 18 at the Embassy Suites in downtown Oklahoma City.
