Northeast Program News and Updates!

Marcy Cox was recognized for her twelve years of service as the Director of the Early Settlement Mediation – Northeast Program at the 2024 Volunteer Conference. We will miss you, Marcy!
We were so excited to welcome over 110 volunteer mediators from all over the state of Oklahoma at our Annual Volunteer Conference!  Many came out to celebrate our volunteers and show their appreciation for their dedication.  Justice John Kane IV, now Chief Justice of the Oklahoma Supreme Court, presented awards for each Program’s nominee of Volunteer of the Year.  Fun Fact:  Justice Kane was our District Judge in Osage County for 14 years before moving on to the Supreme Court.
New Basic Civil Trainees!  The Early Settlement – East (Sarah Adams, Director) & Northeast (Marcy Cox, Director) programs hosted a joint training recently in Claremore on the campus of Rogers State University.  The programs serve a combined 13 counties in northeastern Oklahoma.  Phil Johnson, State Director, helped train the first day of training.

The swearing-in of three Rogers County judges occurred this week for District Judge Lara Russell, Associate District Judge Sue Nigh, and Special Judge Melanie Lander.  In addition, two Ottawa County judges took their Oath for District Judge Jennifer McAffrey and Associate District Judge Matt Whalen.  Early Settlement Mediation is not only to help the community, but also the Courts.  We look forward to working with the new additions!

Jari Askins, Oklahoma Administrative Director of the Courts, presenting the Volunteer of the Year award at the annual Volunteer Conference.  Her support of mediation has been unwavering, helping Early Settlement Mediation to become nationally recognized as one of the leading Programs in the Nation.  If you want to be a part of assisting our Courts, and your community, reach out to for training opportunities today!
