Goodwell, Okla. — Oklahoma Panhandle State University students may often hear “from here you can go anywhere” and for countless alumni that got their start at Panhandle State this very statement rings so true. The Panhandle State Association of Alumni and Friends recently started a new program called “Monday Munch” that seeks to connect current students with alumni giving them the opportunity to learn from those already at work in their field of study.

Most recently, the program saw a visit with professional makeup artist Rogelio Reyna! A select group of students majoring in areas of study from Liberal Arts to Business and Technology got the opportunity to sit down for lunch with Reyna.

Born and raised in Guymon, Reyna is no stranger to the area and couldn’t be more proud of it.

“My career started here at Panhandle State and I am proud of it. It gave me my roots and grounded me. I’m lucky to have graduated from here.”

Reyna earned a Music Theatre degree with a minor in Spanish.

“Once I got here (Panhandle State) what I loved the most was you are somebody.”

He continued, saying that his time as a student was some of the best, most fun four years of his life.

Give him a start it certainly did! Reyna currently lives in Miami and is a Brand Ambassador for Burberry and Global Director of Artistry, Education and Sales at CARGO Cosmetics. He worked for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics for 18 years. Reyna has done makeup for celebrities J Lo, Brittney, and Rihanna just to name a few. He has also been on QVC, Today Show, and Oprah.

His next adventure is to start his own makeup line, something he is in the process of doing right now.

Not only did Reyna share about how he got his start and his current work, he had a number of words for the students as well encouraging them to make themselves stand out through hard work and dedication as he referenced the quote “There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.”

“Go for your dreams and don’t take no for an answer.”
