OC Students Chosen for Teach for America

OC Honors Program students Katelyn Jackson and Hannah Ketring and mechanical engineering major Joanna Sutton earned selection to the competitive Teach For America program to teach in low-income public schools. 

Jackson subsequently chose to participate in a similar program in Tennessee, Memphis Teacher Residency. 

“Students at any age level need people in their lives to support them and tell them that they’re competent and capable so they don’t get trapped in these patterns of failure,” Ketring said. 

OC graduates Henson Adams (11) and Wil Norton (11) joined Teach For America when the program expanded into Oklahoma City in 2011. 

They are now in law school at the University of Texas and Georgetown University, respectively.
