Riding high on Bubble Calm

Mon, Jul 27, 2020

You would think that the two Oklahoma State University students who started a business selling a gum that promotes feelings of calmness would have done well at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic with all the fear surrounding it. But like nearly every business in the U.S. caught up in the crisis, the founders of startup Bubble Calm ran into all kinds of hitches following their launch on the last day of February 2020.

Triumph over tragedy

Visiting Munich, Germany, in the fall means a trip to the world-famous Oktoberfest, the huge celebration where a nation comes together to share its love of beer. For Cindy Crenshaw-Martin, vacationing in Munich with friends in 1980, the fun she expected walking through the festival’s main entrance vaporized before it began. Instead, fire and carnage would change the course of her life.

Business Groundbreakers: Patricia Tilford

Thu, Jul 23, 2020

Leaving home for the first time to attend college is exciting, emotional and sometimes scary. For Patricia Tilford, leaving her hometown of Tulsa to start her freshman year at Oklahoma State University 65 miles away was beyond emotional, considering the social upheaval the United States faced in the 1950s. A 1956 graduate and valedictorian of segregated Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa, Tilford began her studies at the OSU business college on a campus integrated only a few years earlier.

Business groundbreaker: Betty Murrell Hove

Thu, Jul 23, 2020

Betty Murrell Hove arrived on Oklahoma State University’s campus as a business student in 1960. She gave no thought to being a groundbreaker or an inspiration for future students, but through her determination and strength of personality, that’s exactly would happen a few years later when she became the first woman at OSU to earn a Master’s of Business Administration degree.

It’s good that Elise Wade is not the least bit squeamish. Someone has a few broken ribs, no big deal. A cracked collarbone that needs emergency surgery, nothing she can’t handle. A three-inch gash over the eye that’s going to require several stitches, she won’t blink an eye. How about a broken arm dangling at a person’s side? May as well be a hang nail
