OMA Alumni Association Reunion
Rogers State University 

Dr Danette BoyleDear OMA Alumni,

I think of you each morning when I arrive on campus, especially now that it is getting cold! Many years ago, you were walking or running across College Hill in the pouring rain; enduring strong winds and the cold.

Due to COVID-19, we have found ourselves in unchartered times. Everyone on campus is wearing a mask. Fortunately, we haven’t had any major virus spikes among our students, faculty and staff.

The OMA Alumni Association is alive and well. We have 16 students in the Guard Officers Leadership Development (GOLD) Program. This is the largest number ever. Thanks to so many of you in the OMA Alumni Association, these military students have some much needed financial assistance from the scholarship funds you have generously given to them. This is huge because they do not have to borrow so much money! Thank you from the bottom of my hear. And please keep giving if you can!!!

Some of the most exciting news is that the OMA Alumni Board, let by our President, Ken Colley, class of ’69, has voted to move forward to updated and restore the OMA Museum. We have entered into an agreement with John Wooley, author of our OMA book, “Voices From The Southwest”. John will work with our board members and other OMA Alumni to write the story of OMA for the Museum. We plan to hire a consultant to help design the museum and RSU President Larry Rice has offered financial help from RSU and assistance from our Physical Plant Staff. We will be raising funds to help with this effort and can use OMA Alumni Museum funds that we have saved over the years to help with the restoration and updating and to match funds given by those of you that can help.

Maybe the best news is that we have scheduled the next OMA Alumni Reunion, June 11 and 12, 2021. We really hope COVID-19 will be under control and you will be able to attend!
