Community volunteer and business owner, Herald Givens spent his life in service to others. Even as his health was declining rapidly due to ALS, he continued to support the charities, which have become dear to him over the years. Always civic-minded, Herald had been a stalwart model of giving back to one’s community quietly, but with joy, building friendships while providing leadership.
Herald’s relationship with The Little Light House began in 1979 when he volunteered his services as a photographer. He continued helping TLLH in various ways, including serving as a member of the Board of Directors, and remained a faithful supporter for 35 years. Herald has been one of Leadership Tulsa’s greatest champions since he joined in 2002, serving on their Board of Directors, and is a recipient of their prestigious Paragon Award. He died December 19, 2014.
