From San Antonio, Texas Kelly attended Oklahoma Christian and serves students in the Midwest.
Favorite OC Professor: Dr. Philip Patterson
I had my first class with Dr. Patterson my sophomore year at Oklahoma Christian. Everyone in the communication department, and probably some outside of it, had unspoken feelings of both awe and terror toward Patterson. He is the type of person who automatically has the respect of everyone in the room. His classes equip students with everything they need to know without superfluous fluff and busy work. He has high expectations of his students’ work and isn't afraid to be brutally honest about the quality of their work. Because of this, he taught us to produce our best work possible. He became someone I will look up to for years. When Patterson agreed to speak at my wedding, I was ecstatic. I still have that photo in my office.
Favorite OC Memory
Choosing a favorite memory from my years at Oklahoma Christian is almost impossible. If I had to, it would include huddling together during intramural football games in freezing temperatures, practicing to the point of exhaustion for Spring Sing and frantically studying for finals every year in the Nowlin Center with my best friends. Everyone always told me that college would be the best time of my life, but I didn't really believe it until I walked across the stage, face full of tears, and accepted my diploma.
Go to everything. Study together. Rush a club. Meet everyone. Sleep when you have to. That's how I made OC home.
