Scott Draughon drew inspiration to become a multitalented professional from his father, a disabled veteran who was always reminded of his limits due to his health challenges. Mr. Draughon tested his own boundaries in his father’s stead, and today is a licensed social worker and a certified teacher with 14 professional licenses and more than 35 years of experience across the legal, social work, and education sectors. His professional career dates back to 1979, when he was on the board of directors of the Arts and Humanities Council in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Draughon began a post as a contracts analyst for Rockwell International. He wrote the appellate briefs in the cases of Chambers vs. Walker, a landmark decision of the Oklahoma Supreme Court, in the field of uninsured motorist coverage, decided in 1982. Subsequently, he took a position with Rockwell International Corporation, as a Contracts Analyst from 1982-1983. As his passion for community service flourished, Mr. Draughon lent his services to the Tulsa Human Rights Commission as chairman of its public relations and executive committees, as well as to Tulsa Boys’ Home as coordinator of the aftercare department. Later, he joined the Tulsa City-County Health Department as legal counsel. Through this appointment, he developed the Community Health Foundation, a public charity, Inc., whose mission it is to help fund public health needs. This foundation was the first of its kind. Additionally, Mr. Draughon served both the Hospice of Green Country and Cushing Regional Hospital as a social worker, and Franklyn Youth Academy as a school counselor. Today, he focuses his efforts in private practice, specifically in social work, financial planning, and law.
Mr. Draughon prepared for his career by earning a Bachelor of Arts from Oklahoma State University in 1974, a Juris Doctor from the University of Tulsa in 1977, and a Master of Social Work from the University of Oklahoma in 1992. He also holds an associate degree from Tulsa Junior College and has taken postgraduate coursework at Oxford University in England. He has furthered his professional growth through his affiliations with the Oklahoma Bar Association, the Oklahoma Human Rights Commission, Phi Delta Phi, the Oklahoma Aging Advocacy Leadership Academy, and the Keep Tulsa Beautiful non-profit group.
In recognition of his impressive career, Mr. Draughon was selected for inclusion into Who’s Who Among Human Services Professionals, Who’s Who in Finance and Business, Who’s Who in Finance and Industry, Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Law, Who’s Who in Medicine and Healthcare, Who’s Who in the South and Southwest, Who’s Who in the World, and Who’s Who of Emerging Leaders in America.
