The atmosphere surrounding the campus is incredible. It’s a place where you have great facilities, great curriculum, sports programs and where you can get a quality education and meet great people.

Kyle Moralez graduated from USAO ready to turn his passions into a profession.

And that’s just what he did. Moralez is a special education teacher and high school and middle school baseball, football and wrestling coach at Lawton Public Schools.

“This is something I have always wanted to do ever since I was a little kid. I am truly blessed to come back to my hometown after college and do this,” said Moralez, a 2012 USAO graduate. “I love that I am able to help out my students and encourage them to reach to their fullest potential and to be successful.”

Moralez played baseball for four years for the Drovers before returning to his hometown to teach and coach.

“Besides playing baseball there, USAO gave me the opportunity to get a quality education and to meet many great people,” he said. “From my coaches to professors, I have learned so much, and they were truly inspiring to my future endeavors.”

In addition to providing him encouragement and education for his future, Moralez would recommend the university because of USAO’s well-rounded college experience.

“The atmosphere surrounding the campus is incredible,” he said. “It’s a place where you have great facilities, great curriculum, sports programs and where you can get a quality education and meet great people.”

Now inspiring others himself, Moralez offers a bit of advice to USAO’s incoming freshmen and current students.

“Enjoy the ride,” he recommends. “As soon graduation approaches, you can finally see that times goes by fast before you know it. Last, but not least, tell yourself that you can do it. One of the greatest things about earning your degree is that you gained confidence in yourself.”
