Since I was a child, I’ve dreamed about walking across the stage at Oklahoma Wesleyan University to get my undergraduate diploma. This month, it finally happened! I graduated from the OKWU Chesapeake Energy School of Business Communications department with a Bachelor’s of Science in Media Design & Strategy. It has been an incredible, crazy, challenging, and rewarding three years of study!
Of course, this season of life is marked by many ends as well as new beginnings. I was recently blessed by the opportunity to accept a full time position as the Media Relations Coordinator at Oklahoma Wesleyan. I am thrilled to be working at a place that shares my mission and vision just as much as Ogallala Commons has, and couldn’t be more excited. Even better, I am applying to begin studying for my Master’s in Strategic Leadership here at OKWU.
As I begin this new journey, I am reflecting on the huge impact Ogallala Commons has had on my personal life and career path. It has truly been a pleasure to serve as an intern, Intern Coordinator, and Operations Manager for OC. With my new job at Oklahoma Wesleyan, I will be stepping down from the position of Operations Manager into a more behind-the-scenes role in supporting Ogallala Commons. I am so grateful for the relationships I have built at OC, as well as the many opportunities this community has provided for me. I cannot wait to see the great things Ogallala Commons will do in our future!
