Meet Members of Leadership Greater Enid - Class 30
Claye Hammock
Hometown: Enid, OK 
Family: Married to Kolby Hammock and parents to one Cowboy Corgi named Doc. Doc is Kolby's best friend and I simply exist within the household.
Occupation/Profession: I am an accountant at Collins, Butler & Co., P.C. We specialize in income tax planning and preparation for corporation, partnerships, trusts, and individuals. We also provide compilations of financial statements payroll, QuickBooks consulting and other accounting services.
What is the best piece of advice you have ever received? Work ethic beats talent every time. I have been blessed with parents that process strong work ethics, whom expected the same of my brothers and I. Each person can't control their initial talent level at something. They can control their work ethic, which is ultimately responsible for their success.
What qualities do you look for in a leader? 
Charismatic and work ethic. I believe the leaders that make the biggest impact, inspire others to care about a situation more than the individual could on their own. I also believe the best leaders put in a great deal of work and do not ask others to perform tasks that they would not do themselves.
If you could only eat one item of food for the rest of your life, what would you eat?
Enid's own, Taqueria Escobedo's Chips and Salsa. Even when it is incredibly spicy and I find myself without a drink, I cannot stop eating their salsa. It is a hidden gem.
Favorite thing about Enid? 
The people and the growth of the city over the recent years. I spent college and my first three professional years in Oklahoma City. While the numerous restaurant and shopping options were nice, being in Oklahoma City made me appreciate the quality of people here in Enid. Over the 7 years I was gone, there have been many new restaurants and other stores move to Enid.
Hometown: Austin, Texas
Family: My husband, Clayton, and I have been married for 8 years. We have 2 sons, Crawford(5) and Cooper(2), and 2 dogs, Lulu and Dutcher.
Occupation/Profession: I'm the Executive Director of Loaves & Fishes of Northwest Oklahoma.
What is the best piece of advice you have ever received? 
Just ask- worst they can say is no.
What qualities do you look for in a leader? 
Honesty and integrity are 2 things I really value in a leader. I also like to see a leader have confidence in their decisions, while still being flexible and willing to hear others.
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would you eat? 
Chicken burgers from P. Terry's in Austin, TX!
Favorite thing about Enid? 
The people here are just the best! Since moving here a year ago, we have felt so welcome and accepted. Friends, co-workers and acquaintances have shown so much kindness to myself and my family and it has blown us away!
