Rose State College unveiled its 2013 edition of Pegasus, an ensemble of literary arts submitted by RSC students, faculty, and staff.
At 63 pages, the 33rd edition is a compilation of poems, photographs, and artwork chosen by the book’s co-editors, humanities professors Susan Dawson-O’Brien and Dianne Krob. Copies may be purchased for $3 from either Dawson-O’Brien or Krob. Also, books dating back to Pegasus’ early years are also available for $3, while supplies last.
Dawson-O’Brien said Pegasus gives many students a chance to spread their wings, not unlike the publication’s namesake, the mythical flying horse.
“Professor Krob and I have inherited an amazing legacy. It's a gift to work with our talented faculty, staff, and students on this project. For some, the moment opens up opportunities for scholarships and jobs; for others, they realize the possibilities that await them. We are honored to be a part of that process.”
The following is a list of those whose work was selected for inclusion:
For their artwork: Jean-Nicole Black, Oklahoma City; Linda Cooper, Oklahoma City; Brittany Cox, Harrah; Cindy Davis, Choctaw; and Hunter Herrera, Jones.
For their photography: Cherry Aguilar, Oklahoma City; Shelby Darling, Midwest City; Cindy Davis, Choctaw; Pam Fordenbacher, Midwest City; Brennah Lockwood, Oklahoma City; Kimberli Robberson, Edmond; Chelsey Ryder, Chesapeake, Va; Mosetta D.
