WOSC President's Partners Welcomes Southwest Crop Insurance Agency, LLC

Western Oklahoma State College welcomes Emily Worrell, Southwest Crop Insurance Agency, LLC, as a new President’s Partner.  Emily grew up in Hollis, Oklahoma, and now resides in Altus with her husband Chance, six-year old daughter, Lucy and four-year old son Levi. Emily opened Southwest Crop Insurance Agency, LLC, in 2013 after graduating from OSU with a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Communications.

Emily took concurrent classes at Western Oklahoma State College while she was in high school, which, she says better prepared her for her studies at Oklahoma State University. Emily states she chose to become a President’s Partner because “I love that the funds can be used to help students in need for other things not strictly allocated for. I just wish I had known about the program 10 years ago and I would have started then.”

Western Oklahoma State College is thankful to Emily and all of the President’s Partners for providing financial support above and beyond operational funding provided to the college by the Oklahoma Legislature.

The WOSC Foundation, Inc. President’s Partner Program is designed to enhance educational opportunities and student-learning experiences. Partners make an annual pledge of at least $1,000 in support. These pledges provide necessary funding for a variety of purposes, including scholarships, promotions, programs, student and faculty recruitment, facility improvements and initial funding for endowments and endowment development. The President’s Partners are made up of community members and businesses in Altus and its surrounding area.

 The Western Oklahoma State College Foundation provides the opportunity to invest in the future by offering many ways to give. The WOSC Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c) 3 organization and exists to generate support for the students and programs of Western Oklahoma State College.

Randall named 2024 Teacher of the Year

May 20, 2024

Western Oklahoma State College is proud to announce that Rachel Randall, a distinguished biology instructor, has been named the 2024 Teacher of the Year. This prestigious award, determined through nominations by the entire student body and a subsequent selection by the Student Senate, recognizes exceptional dedication and excellence in teaching. 

Rachel Randall has consistently demonstrated a profound commitment to her students, both academically and personally. The nominations submitted by students highlight her extraordinary impact on their educational experiences and personal growth. Here are some of the heartfelt comments from students who nominated her: 

"To me, this teacher has been one of the most caring teachers I know on campus, and I think is the most deserving of this award. Not only because they are an amazing teacher but also because they are the most caring human being. Anytime I need help with something they are always there to help me even if they don't know anything about it, they will learn about it just for me. They are always willing to go above and beyond for every single one of their students and I am completely grateful for that!" 

"I have had the privilege of having this teacher for two different classes. They are knowledgeable and caring. They go above and beyond for their students even when they don't have to. There have been countless times when I have gone to this teacher for help in other classes and if they don't know they takes the time to sit with you and look it up, they make sure you leave their office understanding what you didn't understand when you got into their office with the question. They truly care about their students, and them gaining the knowledge they need to succeed." 

Randall's dedication to her students is evident in every interaction, whether in the classroom or during one-on-one consultations. Her willingness to go the extra mile to ensure her students succeed is what makes her a truly remarkable educator and a deserving recipient of this year's Teacher of the Year award.
