"I will never forget my teammates from the two years I was there because they taught me what being on a team really meant." - Jeremy Lampkin
After going on my first visit to Northern Oklahoma College in Tonkawa, Oklahoma I was almost certain that I would not be making the decision to go to school there; I had come from Peachtree City, Georgia and I had not lived anywhere other than the Southeast my entire life, but after talking with my parents, Coach Weiberg, and praying about it I decided to step out of my comfort zone and go to Oklahoma and attend college. I now know making that decision was one of the best decisions I have ever made!
The life lessons I learned at NOC have stuck with me to this day. I will never forget my teammates from the two years I was there because they taught me what being on a team really meant. Northern showed me the value of hard work and loyalty, which I still carry with me now as I manage a group of over 20 employees with AT&T.
The leadership qualities I gained have impacted me tremendously within my current role as a Retail Store Manager, and being able to improve my game in the gym while excelling in the classroom gave me confidence to know that with the right people around me and a solid work ethic I could be successful.
I not only met lifelong friends at NOC, I met and married the most perfect person, Tiffany Hall. I am still close with my former teammates. Connor Walker (a former teammate) was even the best man at our wedding.
As I am now back in Georgia furthering my career and enjoying life with my beautiful wife, Tonkawa will always have a special place in my heart.
"Not only did I make lifelong friends at NOC, I also met my wonderful husband Jeremy there." - Tiffany Hall-Lampkin
I came from a city in Southwest Oklahoma called Lawton. My twin sister Brittany and I were both recruited by Coach Krause for basketball and I was fortunate enough to make the Lady Mavs basketball team and I was also selected as a member of the President's Leadership Council where I received an academic scholarship.
Trying to balance basketball practice, studying for exams, volunteering and working events for PLC had its challenges, but all of these things pushed me to work hard and to be a great role model. The lessons I learned at NOC have helped me become a confident leader and have taught me how to balance work, school, and home life.
What I enjoyed most about NOC was how close knit the community was and how each and every organization supported one another. Whether it was a sporting event or a Roustabouts concert, everyone came to show support. Not only did I make lifelong friends at NOC, I also met my wonderful husband Jeremy there.
Graduating from Northern Oklahoma College was a bittersweet moment, but those two years prepared me for my next two years at the University of Central Oklahoma, where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Biology.
Jeremy and I now reside in Georgia where I work in the Pharmacy Department at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. I have so many great memories from NOC and I am grateful for all of the staff, fans and students who welcomed us, supported us, and helped us succeed.
