Kathryn Francis -- 100 Alumni You Should Know

 

By Khassandra Hameg

Planning events while at USAO was great training for 2013 graduate Kathryn Francis. She uses those skills every day for Special Olympics Oklahoma.

Francis is the outreach manager for Special Olympics. During her time at USAO, she was an active student. She was the president of the Student Activities Board, where she planned and executed events throughout the school year for fellow students.

“I loved planning and organizing those activities,” Francis said. “We planned events throughout the school year for fellow students. It made me realize what I wanted to do with my life. I am now responsible for planning and implementing events and activities for Special Olympics and I could not be happier.”

“Through my work, I am improving the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities by implementing programs in schools that promote a positive school climate, develop physical fitness, build character and prevent bullying,” Francis said.

Francis graduated with a degree in business management and a minor in liberal arts.

She hopes in the future she will be able to help more students through her work.
