          • Testimony
            1981-1986, Broadcasting, Marketing, Military Science

            I had the honor of graduating from Central State (now UCO) and owe almost all of my success to what I learned there in and out of the classroom. I took full advantage (even as commuter in the late 70's) with three years of ROTC and four years with Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE). My time in Student Senate, and other organizations taught me valuable life lessons in leadership, management, and the value of my degree (Broadcasting). I have travelled the world and take UCO with me everywhere I go! Perfect class size, great reputation, world class education, strong alumni, and the best value in the great state of Oklahoma!
