Even though Brad Nulph was born in Wichita, Kansas, he is Enid through and through. Brad attended Waller Jr. High and was the starting center on several Enid High football teams. He attended Oklahoma State University, and while there met Cathy Cuthriell, who was to become the love of his life. After graduation, Brad returned to Enid and was the staff manager for National Life Insurance, winning many awards for his work there. The Nulph’s moved to Virginia for a few years, to be closer to Cathy’s family, but made their way back to Enid as they missed the close community of Enid. Upon return, Brads went to work for the Enid News & Enid where he has had several different roles, culminating in circulation manager, the position he has today.
While always great at his job, Brad’s spirit of volunteerism is what makes him a “Local Legend.” As a longtime member of the Enid Noon Ambucs, he is on a short list of the hardest-working members, and biggest volunteers. He is often asked to be a member of the Board of Directors for Ambucs, has served as the President, and has headed up several large fundraising events, including the Red Dirt BBQ lunch. Because of his service to Ambucs, Brad has won project manager of the year, and the “Big Earl” Award twice. “Brad is a great friend whose positive attitude will make any situation better. I love having him on any committee because he can always be counted on to be dedicated to make the project a success,” said Anna Blubaugh, a past National Ambucs President.
Brad also was a founding member of the “Greybeards,” a group of ex Enid High Football Players who started a pre-game tailgate before each home game to feed the coaches and student-athletes at no cost, and to raise money for the team.
Brad loves sports, and partnered with Chad McKee to call football games on the radio for several years. He has coached little league football and baseball bother her and in Virginia, for his two boys, Brock and Nick, and was happy to haul his daughter Holly to dance practice and recitals growing up.
Brad and Cathy have been married for 45 years (“he should get an award for that alone,” says Cathy) and they now have 8 grandkids to whom he is a doting grandfather.
If you know Brad, you know what a kind and humble person he is. He’s a great cook, family man, worker, and friend. He is truly a Local Legend.
