Media, music & more maven of OKC, in #clarkclass

The main benefit and joy of my job @okieprof as a professor at UCO are my students, and especially the former students who go on to success in their lives and become friends.
Such is tomorrow's Twitter for Journalists #clarkclass speaker, Sheri Guyse, @MyJrny, a brilliant, energized caring person who is officially communications director for Good Egg Dining Group. You'll have to attend #clarkclass to hear that story.
But Sheri is more than a person with a job. Her multiple passions and work--and survival of tough times--has gained a lot of recognition in OKC, so much so that she was named one of the 40 under 40 professionals by OKBiz last year. You can read about it  and her on the  website. She also has a witty, thoughtful blog, Really Most Sincerely. She is indeed a media and music maven and more.
As with all my speakers, she speaks with passion  on lots more than twitter, and more about life.  I'm proud, and continually energized by her and her story, which mirrors part of OKC's energetic present.
