Terran Johnson – Assistant Director – [email protected] -Terran attended Booker T. Washington High School, participated in the International Baccalaureate Program, and graduated in 2014.  Immediately following this, she enrolled in Oklahoma State University for 2 years but transferred in 2016 to Oral Roberts University studying Drama Television and Film.  In 2019, she graduated from Oral Roberts University with a degree in Drama, Television and Film accompanied with Cum Laude honors. 

            During her time at ORU, her focus was acting on stage and camera.  Playing roles in plays such as Our Town and Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead.  She wrote a short film screenplay called “PURSUIT” which was produced and shown in a local Tulsa theatre in 2021. 

            Terran’s parents enrolled her in The First Tee of Tulsa for the first time in 2008.  Carver Middle School provided after school transportation to a group of seventh and eighth graders, including Terran.  From that time on her interest in golf and The First Tee increased gradually as she became more involved in the program.  She began mentoring participants whilst participating to begin preparation for further employment.  In 2014, Terran was a recipient of the Jo Bob Hille Memorial Scholarship  and joined the coaching staff for the next 4 years.   “I feel so blessed for the opportunity to be back at the chapter and am excited about this new role with the team!” – Terran
