Teagan Ash


Teagan is attending Redlands Community College in El Reno, Oklahoma. He received a scholarship to be in the Redlands Beef Team. The team halter breaks, takes care of the cattle, and takes the cattle to shows. Teagan’s biggest challenge so far in college is learning to make new friends. When asked if there is a difference between high school and college, he said, “They are actually similar in some ways but you have complete freedom in what you do or don’t do, but it is a lot more responsibilities.” The thing Teagan misses the most about Canadian is the small town feel and knowing everyone you encounter. When asked if independence is a dream or a nightmare, he said, “Independence is a dream come true!” Teagan’s advice for current high schoolers, is to be more mature about things, take your classes seriously, and not to give in to peer pressure.

Clara Pulliam

Clara Pulliam currently attends Oklahoma State University and is majoring in Marketing. Her biggest challenge so far has been adjusting to not having her parents around to help her when things get busy. One major difference between high school and college she has encountered is the ability to create her own schedule instead of adhering to one the school provides. The things she misses most from home are her parents, her dogs, Brown Bag, and the ability to drive places without worrying about dorm parking. Clara is keeping a positive outlook on life, saying: “Being independent can be whatever you want it to be- I am doing my best to make it fun and explore my interests.” Clara’s advice for all current high schoolers is to enjoy the time you have in high school. “College is fun, but it is different and you’ll probably miss the validation.” She says that at college, no one will think your special because your name or what sports you do. It’s a new place and you’ll need to prove yourself, which can be difficult. Clara hopes that what she’s said in this college update will benefit future students and make them feel more prepared before venturing out into the college world.
