Bob Johnson, Founding Chairman of the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, strikes you as an unassuming, humble executive. He is. Earlier this month, after hearing him tell the story of how the memorial and museum were developed, it was abundantly clear to me and fellow Wisdom Community audience members that he's also an exceptional, and I really mean exceptional, servant leader. Beginning in 1995, Bob led an incredibly diverse team to defy all sorts of odds to define and develop a somber, beautiful, moving, and thought-provoking experience for those who take the opportunity to visit the site.
The Memorial opened on the 5th anniversary of the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Building in Oklahoma City. The Museum opened a year later. A summary of this history is found here.
