|Old North, from a Christmas card this year|
This is my 26th year as a professor at the University of Central Oklahoma, formerly Central State University, Central State College, Central Normal School. There's much to-do, as there should be this year about this milestone.

It's a good school, with many great programs, respected around the state, having grown from those small beginnings to about 17,000 students.

But I'm proud of the place...we have great students and great alumni, and judging by their successes, I think we do great work.
I've painted "Old North" many times. Happy Birthday, UCO.
