Describe your senior year in 3 words.

Exciting, celebratory, memorable

What advice would you give to next year's freshman class?

It goes by so fast, so enjoy it more than stress over it!!

For students who are new to the OKC area, what is one place they should visit or restaurant they should try?

You must go to the Myriad Gardens! It is so beautiful.

What will you miss most about OCU?

The community

What professor or staff member stands out from your time here, and why?

Dr. Raiber, he has been an extremely influential person in my career and life.

What was your most memorable moment from this school year?

I had the opportunity to take a class called the Art of Teaching Music in Varied Settings. Through this class we had the opportunity to learn a new curriculum called Modern Band, and got to try it in a classroom! The kids learned new songs and music by playing instruments that you find in a rock band! It was easily one of the coolest and most influential things I have been able to do at OCU.

What is one thing you'd like to say to your family and/or friends on your graduation day?

I could never have done this without your constant support and guidance. There will never be enough words that I could say that could express how truly thankful I am. I love you all.

What are your plans after graduation?

I will be starting a new job! I am the new Assistant Orchestra Director at Putnam City North High School!
