2013 Central Family of the Year

The Dougherty family has been named the 2013 Central Family of the Year. The award is given annually to a family who has a long line of members who have attended or graduated from UCO and continue to stay involved with the university.

The Dougherty siblings, Margaret, Russell, Hazel and Jo Ann, lived on a farm six miles outside of Edmond, Okla., and while their home did not have plumbing or electricity, they never lacked for education. Each of the children attended Central State Normal School on what is now the campus of the University of Central Oklahoma.

The oldest of the Doughertys, Margaret, was born in 1916. Jo Ann, born in 1929, is the youngest and last surviving of her siblings. Russell Dougherty was the first Edmond High School graduate to be killed in World War II; Edmond’s Russell Dougherty Elementary is named in his memory.
