Annie Funke OU Alumnus and Star of the TV series “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders”

"I’m so touched by this honor and to be here tonight."

“I am such a proud Oklahoman – I always have been, ask anyone who knows me – born and raised here. I went to the University of Oklahoma, and when I first moved … I met a lot of people – a lot of those coastal people – who seem to be very unaware of this thriving and rich artistic and creative community that I knew and I know in Oklahoma. I feel like in a way I’ve kind of stepped into a role of advocate for our great state because I was so excited to share my experience because I knew firsthand the amazing talent and the work that is cultivated right here. It’s given me even more Oklahoma pride to be able to share my story."

“I have to attribute my entire being and reason, experience in Oklahoma with the unbelievable teachers that I had here.”

-By Brandy McDonnell, The Oklahoman newspaper, April 10, 2017
