Congratulations MDP and LUCO Graduates!

Jill Lynch-Silva, Talent Development Specialist

In recent weeks, we took time to celebrate our most recent graduates from our Management Development Program (MDP) and Leadership UCO (LUCO) program. During the ceremonies we were able to hear their testimony on how much they’ve learned and how the information from these programs has affected their professional and personal lives. Take a look at these proud graduates and give them a shout to congratulate them on their recent accomplishment.

To quote one of our MDP graduates:

“During our MDP experience, the most impactful portion was being exposed to a wealth of information from various guest speakers. Each speaker shared a wealth of information and experience in their fields and wanted to share their knowledge to help us grow. I have also grown a great network of contacts on campus that I can count on.”

Buddy Broncho made his first appearance in UCO's own newspaper The Vista. It was the October 3, 1932, issue where a Broncho appears wearing a UCO football uniform. He has appeared numerous times throughout the years from local Edmond papers in the 60's to state-wide papers in the 80's. The commissioning of the first ever live mascot appears in UCO's 1979 Bronze Book where Buddy Broncho made his first public appearance at Homecoming. Since that time, Buddy has been a fixture at UCO events and in the hearts of UCO students.
