An extraordinary Tulsa woman was honored by the Senate Tuesday for her outstanding accomplishments and contributions to her family and community. Senate Resolution 27, by Sen. Bill Brown, congratulates Chastity "Chazz" Anderson for her selection as Mrs. Oklahoma 2006 and commends her for helping raise awareness of Lupus in Oklahoma.

“We just want to commend Chastity for acting as a role model for married women showing that as a wife, mother, community servant and full-time employee, her work, contributions and causes are both valued and recognized,” said Brown, R-Broken Arrow. “We were so honored to have her and wish her the best in the future.”

Anderson won the title of Mrs. Oklahoma on June 24, 2006 at Rogers State University in Claremore, Oklahoma. She went on to compete in the Mrs. America Pageant held August 23-September 6 in Tucson, Arizona, where she won the barrel-racing event.

Diagnosed over three years ago, Anderson, as Mrs. Oklahoma, has had the opportunity to promote Lupus awareness. She is a Certified Facilitator with the Lupus Foundation of America, Oklahoma Chapter, where she leads a support group and assists with fund-raising.

A resident of Broken Arrow, Anderson has worked for over 13 years in the banking industry. She is currently the Assistant Vice President/Operations Manager for Bank of Oklahoma, managing the fraud department. She has also served as a Junior Achievement Counselor for almost ten years, and owns and operates a hobby business in photography.

She is also a board member and co-chair for the Oklahoma Prom Angel Charity (OPAC). The organization was established to assist young women in Oklahoma with financially challenged backgrounds achieve higher self-esteem and a sense of self-worth by making it possible for them to attend their junior/senior proms. Each year, thousands of Oklahoma girls are unable to attend their proms because they lack the finances to purchase the dresses, shoes and jewelry they feel are necessary to attend. OPAC helps these young women’s prom dreams come true.

Anderson and her husband, Greg, have one daughter, Morgan, who is six years old.
