Senior Leadership Members
Chief Executive Officer
Rebecca Stone is the Chief Executive Officer for the BGCSNOK. Becky provides administrative planning, development and organization of the club. Although Becky holds a Bachelor’s of Arts in Public Relations from the University of Oklahoma, her leadership is based on over 22 years of experience in tribal, state, and federal employment positions. As the Executive Director of the Housing Authority of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma for the last eight years, she earned the National American Indian Housing Council’s highest certification as a Professional Indian Housing Manager. With the knowledge gained through her certification, Becky was able to identify federal funding which helped to actualize her dream of developing a Boys & Girls Club for the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma. Becky was able to help get the BGCSNOK chartered in December 2021, hire staff, and get the doors open in September 2022. In an effort to employ a trauma-informed approach to serve the most vulnerable children and youth, she received training in Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) to guide BGCSNOK operations and services. As a member of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma and growing up in the small rural community of Wewoka, she knows that the real and life-enhancing difference to be made is through care for and service to children and youth.
