Oklahoma, the Sooner State

Here’s an introduction to my home state and my alma mater, the University of Oklahoma.

The artist-Tom K Simms

Mr. Simms graduated from the school of fine arts at the University of Oklahoma, majoring in sculpture, painting. He was a star performer on the Sooner track team, and set the Big Six record in the high jump and high hurdles. He also ran the mile, low hurdles and did the broad jump. He was selected as one of the most promising students in the university, to do a sculptural design for a gateway presented by his class to the university. (info not confirmed, source newspapers.com)

Taken together, Oklahoma Sooners reflects our state’s American Indian and pioneer heritage and, today, symbolizes a special university spirit that values resilience and perseverance as well as the inclusivity that unites all who are a part of the University of Oklahoma family.
