Pam Reynolds, professor of home environmental sciences, has been working at RSC for 28 years. “I always wanted to teach, since the seventh grade,” Reynolds said. She thought she wanted to teach high school, but when the opportunity arose, she decided she would teach on the collegiate level. She graduated from the University of Oklahoma (OU) with her Bachelor’s of Science in 1976. Furthering her education, she received her Master’s of Science from OU in 1979. “I teach clothing instruction, textiles, nutrition and fashion and marketing.” She loves to quilt and sew, she said, “I always wanted to teach, but [I] thought about working as a pattern designer.” She is also one of the sponsors for Non Traditional Student Organization (NTSO) and the sponsor of the new Sew Savvy club. NTSO helps out with community service projects that is involved with assisting other clubs on the campus. Sew Savvy is a club designed for those who like to sew and who are into design.
