Fred Christian worked many hours as a teacher, coach, official and athletic administrator from 1970-1995. Fred spent most of his professional career in the Norman and Moore school districts. He suffered a heart attack while officiating a high school football game in 1995. He made significant contributions at the state and national athletic administration levels as a valuable officer in both the OIAAA and NIAAA. Fred was a fine gentleman and truly cared about kids. Hopefully this scholarship will provide an Athletic Director’s child with the opportunity to better themselves and make a valuable contribution to society. His own children were the first recipients of the scholarship.
