EPAS Teacher Data Workshop I attended the workshop yesterday, 2-18-13, in El Reno and I wanted to take a minute to say that you all did a wonderful job. It has been a while since I went to a workshop and left with that much information in a short period of time! The workshop was perfect in time management, applicable information, and very goal oriented. The speakers did a fantastic job delivering information. Thanks again and I truly look forward to attending another workshop hosted by the OSRHE! Thanks
Conclusions Results from this study indicate that early monitoring activities with ACT Explore and ACT Plan benefit the early and long- term college success of students in a state. Oklahoma students who are monitored early are consistently outperforming in college those who are not monitored early. These findings hold true for all students, regardless of their race/ ethnicity or family income
Counselor Retreat Roman Nose Lodge February 11, 2013
Thank you so much! You had such a wonderful Counselor Retreat! You do such a great job encouraging and supporting us. Thank you and the OSRHE for the retreat. These gatherings are so helpful and encouraging. I really appreciate what you all do for the counselors. I went back a little more refreshed and with lots of good information! I wanted to thank you once again for all the great information and relaxing time at the counselors retreat. I want to thank you also for the encouragement. To be honest I was really getting depressed over my situation here and felt like I am just not being effective in any area. I came away from it once again with the realization that I just need to keep doing the best and most I can do and not be overly concerned with all that I can't do. I am so looking forward already to the summer institute and all that it will have to offer. I really do love and feel a calling to and for this job and opportunities like the retreat yesterday remind me of that!
Notes from former participant: “ I ran into a couple of fellow alumni of the SWOSU SSMA … I participated two summers, back in … 94/95 & 95/96. … The academy was one of the greatest college prep experiences for me - and hopefully for generations to come!” Robert Stokes, President, Topographic Mapping Company, OKC
Prof. Campbell, I had attended the SWOSU Summer Science and Mathematics Academy when it was in its infancy and thought you all may enjoy a “success story” if you will. I believe it was the Summer 2000 Academy I attended.. …. you would likely remember the quiet, red-headed Okie who won almost every award at the banquet. Lately I’ve looked back and now see just how impactful that academy was on my life. I was always interested in science but the faculty of that academy were the first to show me the importance of cross-disciplinary science in our future and help set me on my path as research scientist. Where else do poor, 16 year-old Okies get a chance to work a Mass Spec, make webpages, etc. under the guidance of university faculty? Over a decade later, I’m now an experimental condensed matter physicist (via Texas Tech University) and tenure-track assistant professor at Arkansas State University. I certainly have the SWOSU academy to thank for cementing my scientific passions and getting me to where I am today. The emphasis of many faculty on looking beyond disciplinary borders has been especially impactful on my life….. In a nutshell, all branches of physics except for Classical Mechanics & Biophysics jumbled into one beautiful, complicated mess. Perhaps because I’m approaching 30 I’m looking back at my life thus far, but whatever the case, lately I’ve felt this incessant need to let the SWOSU folk know how much I appreciate their efforts. Best regards, -Ross Carroll
