College Recognizes Student Interns with Choctaw Nation Project

Thursday, November 19, 2015

On Nov. 13, the OSU College of Education hosted a reception to honor students who participated in internships with the Choctaw Nation over the summer.

Seven elementary education majors –Tashina Morgan, Cierra Huls, Amy Wells, Veronica Smith, Addi Freiner, Mackenna Adams and Christina Gagner – worked with the Choctaw Nation’s Partnership of Summer School Education Program (POSSE) in Durant. At Friday’s reception, they presented posters outlining their experiences and what they had learned. 

The College welcomed Choctaw officials Stacy Shepard (Senior Executive Director of Member Services), Larry Scott (POSSE Director) and Todd Hughes (Education Department), as well as Durant Public Schools Superintendent Duane Merideth and Northwest Heights Elementary School Principal Valerie Crabtree for the reception.

The project was also supported by the OSU Center for Sovereign Nations and director Elizabeth Payne and coordinator Sky Rogers represented the center at the reception.
