Curtis Starts New ChapterReleased by OPSU Campus Communications on 07/16/2014
Goodwell, Okla. — For nearly as long as she can remember, OPSU has been an important part of Tere Curtis’s life.
Curtis grew up in Guymon, Okla. and has spent time on the OPSU campus since she was a child attending summer camps. Curtis chose to stay close to home for the college years and she graduated from OPSU with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Computer Information Systems. She has attended numerous activities and sporting events at OPSU over the years. Most recently, Curtis worked on campus serving as the Housing Director for 13 years.
Curtis has seen many new housing developments during her time as the Director. Additions have been made including the Aggie Apartments, a four-bedroom suite, which opened in 2004 and the Aggie Annex which opened in 2010 and includes two bedrooms, one full bath, a living room and a full kitchen.
Curtis said, “It’s been fun seeing the changes in housing and to see the choices that are now available for the students.”
Continuing to reminisce on her time at OPSU, she commented on one of her favorite times saying, “I always enjoy the students coming back to campus in August.”
The students enjoy her just as much.
Sophomore Kayla Husted works in the Housing Office as a student worker. Husted said, “I had the privilege of working with Tere for a little over a year. It was a great experience and one I will never forget. She is a great lady and a hard worker. People from all over campus were always stopping in the office to say hello. I know she will continue to do great things.”
Curtis said while she is eager for new opportunities, she will greatly miss the people she has worked with at OPSU.
Curtis’s future plans include spending more time with her family especially her grandson, Wrigsby, who will turn a year old at the end of July! She plans to travel and spend time working on different projects she enjoys.
