The Delta State Experience

I toured Delta State University in the fall of my senior year of high school. Right after the visit, my new favorite color was definitely green! I fell in love with the campus. I immediately felt this sense of family—of home. As I reminisce on that day, my mind is blown at what all Delta State has given me. I am now a sophomore majoring in Elementary Education with endorsements in multiple subjects. I am a member of Phi Mu Fraternity, a Delta Diplomat, a member of the Student Alumni Association, as well as a member of several other organizations. This university has opened a plethora of doors for me and has given me opportunity after opportunity to be a part of things much bigger than myself. I have had the privilege of meeting some of the most incredible people, not only students but faculty members as well. The relationships I have formed are incomparable to any others. I’m not just another number here. This is by far one of the best decisions I ever made. This is my home—one of my absolute favorite places. This is Delta State, and I am proud to be a fighting Okra!

As a 2021 graduate at Delta State University from Louisiana, I'm excited to use my education degree in the areas of special education and physical education. During my time at Delta State, I was a football player, which guided my career to education and coaching. The reason I chose to go into education was because I have a love for passing my gained knowledge to youth and helping others shape their future. I had teachers that devoted themselves to me and taught me the right way to study and how to get the most out of my education. I always wanted to be an educator and never hesitated when choosing my major.

I view myself as a role model because I am an African American male, former collegiate athlete, and an honor student. I want to be a positive role model for youth because they so desperately need one. I want to show them that hard work and fun can go hand in hand. I always want to help students achieve their goals that they thought they could not achieve. I want to bring the best out of each student and help them realize his/her true potential in the classroom.
