Two OCU Alumni Named "Rising Stars"

Two Oklahoma City University alumni - Kent Hathaway and Meredith Ziegler - were named Rising Stars during the Teacher of the Year ceremony at the Oklahoma State Fair. 

Rising Stars are teachers who show an "amazing amount of promise in their profession." They are selected based on portfolios reviewed by the Oklahoma Teacher of the Year regional selection committees. The judges are made up of award-winning teachers, past Teachers of the Year, and past finalists.

Hathaway is a K-4th grade art teacher from Mustang Elementary School. Ziegler, is a pre-K through 6th grade vocal music teacher at Wilson Arts Integration Elementary School in the Oklahoma City School District.
