  Each month, CASA of Northeast Oklahoma celebrates the advocacy of one of our CASA volunteers. This month, we are highlighting the service of Lisa Stiles. Stiles has served in Rogers County as a volunteer advocate for two years. Stiles is committed to serving in many roles within her community. In addition to teaching fitness classes, she works with the Rogers County Election Board, volunteers as an usher for the Performance Arts Center in Tulsa, and volunteers in multiple ministries at Bible Church of Owasso. Stiles’ demanding schedule is further filled with her tireless work with CASA. In the last two years, Stiles has contributed significantly to two successful cases and is working on a third.

On November 7, 2019, Claremore High School Navy Junior ROTC conducted a Veterans Day Assembly to honor those that have served our great country. During the assembly, Claremore High School bore witness to a special and long overdue high school graduation!  They honored an American hero who never got the chance to graduate high school because of his service in World War II. Mr. Lewie Shaw left high school to enlist in the Marine Corps and serve his country in 1943. Corporal Shaw’s combat service with the 4th Marine Division included battles of Tinian, Saipan, and Iwo Jima. On a mission in Saipan, Corporal Shaw was wounded by grenade shrapnel and never reported it, so he could keep fighting the enemy. Mr. Shaw returned home to Claremore after the War in 1946 and has been an outstanding member of our community. At 95 years old, CHS added to that great uniform...
