OBU recently welcomed new staff member Kenny Day to serve as the university's marketing communications coordinator.
Day completed a bachelor's degree of journalism/advertising from the University of Oklahoma in 1999. He attended OBU for three semesters before completing his degree at OU. He met his wife, Jana, while attending OBU.
Upon graduation, Day spent a short while working in the newspaper business for a Tulsa based company, Neighbor Newspapers. He then spent over nine years working for faithHighway, a Christian marketing and advertising firm that serves local churches all over the country with production and placement of TV commercials, websites, and other communications tools. For the past five years before returning to Bison Hill, Day served as the marketing communication coordinator for Northeast Technology Center school district in northeastern Oklahoma. He currently serves as the president of the Oklahoma School Public Relations Association.
Aside from his professional life in marketing, public relations, and communications, Day served in a bi-vocational role as music and youth minister at Beaver Street Baptist Church, Jenks, Okla., for the past four years before moving to Shawnee.
"I'm so excited to be coming home to Bison Hill to join the team at OBU," Day said. "I want to be a part of growing and increasing the reach and influence OBU has in our state, in our country, and in the world. God is doing so many wonderful things here at OBU, and I'm blessed to be a part of it."
Day and his wife, Jana, have been married for 16 years. Jana is a certified elementary teacher with five years of experience teaching fifth grade, and she has also spent several years as a full-time mom. They are blessed with two wonderful children, Emily, 11, and Tyler, 8.
