OC director of special projects Chuck White earned the Ambassador’s Award from Edmond Church of Christ earlier this month.

Dale Hartman from Eastside Church of Christ in Midwest City, where White served as an elder and deacon, presented White with the award for his service to the church and the Kingdom through his years of service and mentoring others.

“It is truly an honor to be recognized by my brothers in Christ. I certainly was not expecting such an honor; I am humbled to receive it. I am blessed beyond measure,” White said.

White played baseball at Oklahoma Christian from 1974 to 1976 and returned to his alma mater as director of athletic operations in 2004.

He helped revive OC’s baseball program as head coach in 2008 and spearheaded efforts to build Dobson Field and the Bobby Murcer Indoor Training Facility.

White worked for Midwest City-Del City Public Schools for 28 years, leading Carl Albert High School’s baseball team to the state tournament in 2002 and the softball team to the state tournament in 2003 and 2004.

He was named Teacher of the Year at Ridgecrest Elementary in Midwest City and Carl Albert High School. In 1999, White was named OC’s Education Alumnus of the Year.
