Judge Timothy D. DeGiusti recently received the Wall of Fame award of The Foundation for Oklahoma City Public Schools. The Foundation is a nonprofit organization with a mission to advance excellence and build strong community support for the school district. The Wall of Fame celebrates the long, rich history of the Oklahoma City Public Schools by honoring alumni and community leaders who have added significantly to the quality of life in our state and country. The Wall of Fame includes some of the city’s and the nation’s most influential alumni and community leaders.

Judge DeGiusti attended Columbus Elementary, Jackson Middle School, and Douglass High School. He was a student leader at Douglass High School and graduated in 1981. Judge DeGiusti discovered his interest in the law during his senior year, while studying a United States Supreme Court decision and preparing arguments for a mock trial. Judge DeGiusti credits the education he received from Oklahoma City Public Schools with leading to a career in law and public service. He spent more than two decades in active and reserve military service, including the Judge Advocate General’s Corps. Judge DeGiusti won bipartisan support for his appointment to the federal bench by President George W. Bush in 2007.


Judge DeGiusti currently serves as President of the Oklahoma City Chapter of the Federal Bar Association.
