Tolbert Named to Journal Record’s 50 Making a Difference


Civic leader and attorney Molly Tolbert has been named to The Journal Record’s 50 Making a Difference in October. Tolbert serves as a regent at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma in Chickasha.

The special edition is a part of The Journal Record’s 30-year tradition of recognizing Oklahoma women who serve as leaders in their chosen fields as well as their community. The publication features full-page biographies of each of the 50 honorees and serves as the program for the Woman of the Year gala, which was held on Oct. 8 in Oklahoma City.

“I am honored to be included with such an extraordinary group of women for this recognition,” remarked Tolbert. “I am grateful got the opportunities to be involved in organizations such as USAO that are making a difference in Oklahoma.”

“Regent Tolbert serves Oklahoma with distinction and honor,” said USAO President John Feaver. “It comes as no surprise that The Journal Record would recognize her leadership and example as among the best in Oklahoma.”

Tolbert was appointed to USAO’s Board of Regents in 2006 by Gov. Brad Henry to complete the unfinished term of the late Malyne Hilburn. In 2007, she was reappointed for a full seven-year term and serves currently as vice chair.

Tolbert began her education at the University of Michigan where she studied English. She then went on to graduate from Yale Law School in 1993, where she served as a senior editor for the Yale Law Journal.  After graduation, Tolbert spent three years practicing law in Washington D.C. before moving to Oklahoma.

She currently serves as an advisory director for Crowe & Dunlevy’s Oklahoma City office and is a member of the Oklahoma Bar Association and the American Bar Association’s litigation and antitrust sections.
