Southwestern Alumna Wins Teacher of the Year Award
May 7, 2020

OKLAHOMA CITY – Yeneer Oruru, member of the Oklahoma City Central Seventh-day Adventist Church and Southwestern Adventist University alumna, works at Surrey Hills Elementary school in Yukon as a special needs teacher. Earlier this school year she was awarded the “Teacher of the Year” by her colleagues at Surrey Hills. In early December she graduated with her second Master of Art degree in Administration of Special Education. Oklahoma News Channel 4 recently visited her classroom along with First Fidelity Bank. One of Oruru's coworkers nominated her to the Pay it 4ward Award program (a program through which KFOR-TV viewers can help someone they know who could use extra cash immediately).
