OBU Centennial Moments

Celebrating its Centennial anniversary, Oklahoma Baptist University has released a series of short "Centennial Moment" videos offering a glimpse of various aspects of life on Bison Hill from its inception.

The videos are narrated by two OBU graduates: John Holcomb, '88, Tulsa sports director for OKBlitz.com, and Kirsten McIntyre Gantz, '91, anchor/reporter for Oklahoma City's CBS affiliate, KWTV. The Centennial Moments reveal how OBU adopted "Ka-Rip" as the school's yell, at what time hundreds of men lived in WMU Dormitory, how 60 acres of wild golden coreopsis influenced the school colors and other details of the university's 100-year history.

The Centennial Moments are written by Dr. John W. Parrish, an honorary 1989 alumnus and chair of OBU's Centennial Committee. They are produced by Michael Bruce, a 1989 alumnus and assistant professor of telecommunication and film at the University of Alabama, and Derek Watson, a 2006 alumnus who works as principal and founder of Lampstand Media based in Oklahoma City.
