Eastern president visits with student leaders in Idabel


IDABEL, OK (April 15, 2014) – Five of the best and brightest Eastern Oklahoma State College students from the Southeastern McCurtain County Campus in Idabel recently met with college administrators to discuss their experiences at Eastern.

Eastern President Dr. Stephen E. Smith, Site Coordinator Preston Wheeler and Associate Vice President Dr. Janet Wansick hosted the luncheon to recognize each student’s academic and leadership success. Attending the event were Tammy Bray and Regina Hill of Idabel, Sherry Holeman and Chanelle Gulley of Broke Bow, and Stacey DeRamcy of New Boston, Tex.

All of the students are Eastern Ambassadors, a group of student leaders who advance and promote the college by serving as a face of the student body. The Ambassadors help organize and participate in all student activities, provide campus tours and promote Eastern in the community and at events such as career and college fairs. Eastern Ambassadors are selected by recommendation of faculty members.

The students talked about their experiences as non-traditional students balancing work and family with their classwork. Hill and Gulley are studying administrative office technology, Holeman is majoring in general studies and DeRamcy and Bray will earn their degrees in medical laboratory technology.
