A resident of Oklahoma City, Duke Ligon possesses considerable experience in energy law practice and all phases of domestic and foreign oil industry. The founder of the Mekusukey Oil Company, Duke Ligon also serves on the board of directors for the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals that provided services to the state throughout their lives. Its educational programming includes field trips for elementary and high school students.
The free field trip program offers themed museum tours tailored towards the class’ age and school grade, and according to Oklahoma educational standards. Children receive free admission to the Gaylord-Pickens Museum hosting the Hall of Fame and a free lunch selected by educators. In addition, students may purchase souvenirs from the Museum Store, which offers multiple items ranging between $1 and $10.
Field trips accommodate a minimum of 10 students, with a 1:10 adult-student ratio for grades 6th through 12th and a 1:5 adult-student ratio for fifth grade and below. Spots are awarded to classes on a first-come, first-serve basis throughout the 2016-2017 school year and summer months, and classes must make their requests at least one month prior to their preferred field trip date. Groups that cannot meet the required adult-student ratio must reschedule for another date when they can meet the minimums. Additional adults can also attend for an added fee.
