On Thursday evening, October 11th of 2012, Don Powers received the George Washington Honor Medal from Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge.  This is the highest honor that the foundation awards. Mr. Powers was recognized for his Teaching of the Constitution and his efforts to educate people about the founding documents.  

In January 2010, Powers at Law, LLC was selected as the 2009 Edmond Chamber of Commerce/Bank of Oklahoma Small Business of the Year.  This is a great honor for the two-lawyer firm. Don Powers, who taught adjunct at the University of Central OKlahoma, has resigned that teaching position and taken on the role of teacher of the U.S. Constitution.  Teaching classes about the 28 principles of freedom on which our Constitution is structured, Don uses the Founders' own words to explain the document and the pitfalls that we are experiencing in our nation.  Constitition classes are held at various churches throughout the metropolitan area and at H&H Gun Range in Oklahoma City.   Additionally, Don writes a weekly newspaper column about Constitutional issues.  It is published in the Thursday edition of Edmond Life & Leisure.  

In October 2008, Don Powers was honored as a founder of the Oklahoma Airport Operators Association.  Don, one of six founders of the organization, served for many years as its Secretary.  Don and the others wanted the organization to serve all airports in Oklahoma, and he would not serve as President because he did not want a large airport to monopolize the organization. During the organization's infancy, Don had his airport, Tulsa International, to provide funding for the organization, so it could survive and become a viable professional group.  Today, the organization has money in the bank and usually has more than thirty members at its meetings.

Effective July 1, 2008, Don retired from his position of Attorney in the University of Central Oklahoma Legal Office. He served UCO as Manager of Compliance since 2004. Currently, he is a member/manager of Powers At Law, LLC, what he considers a "significant promotion." 

In 2007, Don completed certification as a Community Emergency Response Team member and also the Citizens' Police Academy of Edmond.   He is an active member of the Edmond Rotary Club and the Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce.
