"The education I received at Oklahoma State was exceptional. The exposure to the diverse and applicable subject matter was important, but even more critical, the education process taught me how to think. I am a total believer that education is the silver bullet and that being a life-long learner is imperative to success and improving your world. I'm glad to give back to the institution that afforded me the opportunities I have been given."
