OKLAHOMA CITY -- Former Tennessee head women's basketball coach Pat Summitt has received a lifetime achievement award from the Annie Oakley Society.

Summitt was honored Thursday at a luncheon and fundraiser to benefit the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. The Annie Oakley Society celebrates women who demonstrate leadership and the entrepreneurial spirit of the American West.

Susan Arp of the Pat Summitt Foundation said that Oklahoma women's basketball coach Sherri Coale accepted the award on Summitt's behalf.

The society also named actress Kristin Chenoweth the Annie Oakley Society Award honoree.

Summitt led Tennessee to 1,098 wins and eight national titles in 38 seasons before stepping down in April 2012, one year after announcing she had early-onset dementia, Alzheimer's type. Since stepping down, she has remained on staff as head coach emeritus.
