EDMOND — Five Edmond residents earned their bachelor’s degree from Oklahoma Christian University on Dec. 13.

The students include: Suzanne Crista Bigelow, magna cum laude, psychology;

Jillian Rose Hewitt, accounting; Kortni RoseAnn Orr, management; Jonathan Seth Reynolds, youth ministry; and Carson Draper Scott, accounting.

They were one of 87 students to receive their undergraduate degrees at OC’s winter commencement ceremony. The graduates came from 16 states and seven countries and majored in a combined 36 academic disciplines at Oklahoma Christian.

Jim Baird, director of OC’s Honors Program, delivered the commencement address.

For the past three years, the cost of attendance for OC undergraduate students has stayed the same, making Oklahoma Christian the only university in the state and the only reporting member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities that did not raise its total price.
