Dr. Shirley Mixon (left), director of East Central University's Degree Completion Program-Organizational Leadership, congratulates the three graduates who received organizational leadership degrees in December, Rebekka Cox and Debbie Jewett of Ada, and Leasa Furr of Pauls Valley. The women participated in Oklahoma's flexible Reach Higher Program that allows working adults to finish a college degree they may have started years ago while they are working or raising a family. More information is available from Mixon at 580-559-5279.
Students in an East Central University political science class hold boxes of canned goods they donated to the Matthew 25 Mission at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. The Christmas donation included almost 100 cans of Spam. Shown are the Rev. John Norvell (from left) of St. Luke’s; Aleisha Brewer, a political science major from Wister; and Dustin Parris, a legal studies major from Holdenville. The class was taught by Dr. Christine Pappas.
Ada Mayor Roger Cupps (left) and Public Works Director Cody Holcomb display signed drawings of the Hallie Brown Ford Fine Arts Center that were presented to the City of Ada by East Central University. The presentation was made at an Ada Public Works Appreciation Day lunch on the campus to recognize the city employees who worked in extreme conditions, including temperatures up to 140 degrees on the concrete last summer, to complete the Centennial Plaza adjacent to the fine arts center. The city originally planned to reconstruct that block of East Main Street. The Ada City Council approved ECU's request to close that block of the street and a block of Francis east of the fine arts center and construct the plaza at a much lower cost.
