For nearly 100 years, Oklahoma Panhandle State University has provided its students with a high quality education. Dr. Shiloah Stover and his wife, Holly Hooper-Stover met at OPSU, and both attribute their education here with the success they now enjoy.

Holly graduated from OPSU with a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology in May of 2001 and completed a Bachelor of Arts in secondary education at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. She currently teaches in the Sayre, OK public school and said she enjoys helping children achieve their very best. Holly served as a member of the student senate and played softball three years for the Lady Aggies. She stated, “Softball taught me to persevere in difficult situations. Student Senate taught me how to compromise and work well with others to accomplish something big.”

Although Shiloah did not graduate from OPSU, he says his coursework here led him to meet the admissions requirements for chiropractic school. He completed a Bachelor of Science degree in human biology and a doctor of chiropractic degree at Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City. He recently opened his own clinic, Stover Family Chiropractic in Elk City, and enjoys helping his patients attain their optimal health and wellness. During his time at OPSU, he played baseball and basketball and says that, coupled with his resident assistant experience, he overcame his shyness and gained the interpersonal skills necessary in his profession.

Our cozy, collegial atmosphere offers students the opportunity to complete a degree as well as the chance to develop personal, professional, and leadership skills.
