Sen. Ben Robinson, D-Muskogee; Kathy McKean, director of the Oklahoma Technical Assistance Center; and Kurt Snodgrass, vice chancellor for information technology and telecommunications for the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, discuss OneNet’s role in education and its impact on the state’s economic competitiveness on this week’s “College Connection.”
In addition, “College Connection” guests John Keely, head women’s basketball coach at the University of Central Oklahoma; Bill Regan, associate director of membership services for the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA); and Cory Walker, a Rose State College baseball player, provide a look at making the transition from high school to college athletics and how sports can serve as one way to pay for a college education.
