Oklahoman who brightens lives and shoes honored with award

One Oklahoman who exemplifies the spirit of giving is honored with an award.

A man who brightens not only shoes, but lives as he pays it forward with his smile and spirit.

Cleo Fields shines shoes for a living at the Oklahoma County Courthouse.

Those who know him say along with the shoe shine, comes a friendly voice, a sympathetic ear and words of wisdom that makes the time spent in Cleo’s chair a special part of any day.

It is that kind of fondness for Cleo that led Attorney Anita Sanders to nominate him for Pay It 4Ward.
