Oklahoma Panhandle State University graduates students with science degrees who are well prepared to continue their education or start a career. Sometimes we even get lucky enough to have one return to teach at OPSU. Shelli Plymesser Roberston graduated from OPSU in May of 2003 with degrees in biology and animal science. She is now teaching chemistry at OPSU and is currently working on a master’s degree in biology at West Texas A&M University in Canyon, Texas.

As a student at OPSU, Robertson was active in Alpha Zeta and Alpha Chi. She also received the Presidential scholarship as well as Panhandle Foundation scholarships and was nominated for Who’s Who Among American College Students.

Robertson has taught in the OPSU chemistry department for two years, teaching some of the same classes that she took as an undergraduate student. She enjoys her work because of the familiarity of the program and the people she works with. Robertson has found her undergraduate courses to be not only beneficial to her teaching, but they also fully prepared her for graduate work. “Some of the classes I took here really help me with my graduate classes. Sometimes I am only one of a few who has already learned something that we are currently covering in class at WT.” Robertson also believes that the small class size and one-on-one interaction with her professors at OPSU was extremely valuable to her education and career.

Robertson’s husband, Jason, works for CRI Feeders of Guymon, Okla. They have two children, Bailey, 6, and Braden, 3.
