Yes, “it is a small world after all” when three Oklahoma State University alumnae get together a long way from their college town of Stillwater, OK, all now residing in Orange, Texans.!  From left, are Anne Hardy Payne, B.S., Language Arts Education, 1975; Dr. Kathleen Kennedy, B.S., 1980, & D.V.M, 1984; and Diane Thompson Sturdivant, B.S., F.R.C.D.
