Special to The Sun

EDMOND — Oklahoma Christian University president John deSteiguer presents a signed letter from President George W. Bush to Lori Walle. She is the daughter of Lou Phillips, a longtime OC staff member who passed away Jan. 6 at the age of 82.

President Bush sent the letter to offer condolences to Lou's family. Lou was the executive assistant to then-OC president Terry Johnson when George W. Bush visited campus in 1990 and when George H.W. Bush visited campus in 1992. Lou was the official hostess for that 1992 visit and worked with President George H.W. Bush's team to handle many of the on-campus details.
