He graduated from Putnam City Public Schools before receiving his B.A. from George Washington University and his law degree from Oklahoma City University.

 

Mayor Holt served in the White House, and then for five years as chief of staff to former Mayor Mick Cornett before serving almost eight years in the Oklahoma Senate. There, then-Sen. Holt authored over 70 pieces of legislation that became law.

He was honored as OKCityan of the Year by "OKC Friday" and has earned the Sunshine Award from Freedom of Information Oklahoma, the Guardian Award from the Oklahoma Commission on the Status of Women, the Child Abuse President Award from Parent Promise, the Bulldog Award from the Oklahoma District Attorneys Council and a Governor’s Art Award, among others. A month after taking office as Mayor, he was named one of the “Ten Outstanding Young Americans” under the age of 40 by JCI USA (Jaycees).

 

Mayor Holt is the author of “Big League City: Oklahoma City’s Rise to the NBA,” which chronicles Oklahoma City’s recent renaissance.
