LAWTON, Okla., - After making Comanche Nation Entertainment history as the first team member to hold a 40-year tenure with the company, Stephanie Poemoceah has retired. 

Poemoceah first started her career in 1983, the same year Comanche Nation Entertainment opened its first facility, making her one of the first team members to join the company. As she enters retirement, Poemoceah’s four-decade journey culminated in her role as a compliance technician. 

“As Stephanie begins her next chapter, we would like to express our sincere appreciation for her dedication and the positive influence she has had on our organization,” said Kristi Glover, human resources manager at Comanche Nation Casino. “We are deeply grateful for her years of service, and while we will miss her presence in the workplace, we wish her a well-deserved retirement filled with joy, relaxation and new adventures.” 

40 years ago, Poemoceah joined the team when the facility was opened as a high-stakes bingo hall. Throughout her time at Comanche Nation Entertainment, she has played a crucial role in the success of the organization, supporting its growth from one property to now six properties throughout Southwest Oklahoma. 

Comanche Nation Entertainment honored Poemoceah’s  contributions and lasting impact with a retirement celebration earlier this week.
