Meeker's Savannah Oliver : Athlete Spotlight - Presented by Gordon Cooper Technology Center
By Chris Cox
Savannah Oliver stays busy. When Oliver isn’t cheering for the Meeker Bulldogs, she can be found on the track running in multiple events for Meeker. Oliver is also involved with her youth group at Meeker First Baptist Church. Along with church, athletics, and her schoolwork at Meeker High School, Oliver is also a part of Gordon Cooper Technology Center’s Criminal Justice and Emergency Services program.
Being a multisport athlete helps Oliver in her studies at Gordon Cooper. For the Criminal Justice and Emergency Services program, students have a physical fitness portion of their day. The physical fitness emphasis also goes throughout both years of the program.
Oliver knew she wanted to go to Gordon Cooper, she just wasn’t sure which program she wanted to be a part of.
“My sister went to Gordon Cooper and recommended it,” Oliver says. “I also had a friend already in the criminal justice program and it sounded cool. So, I looked into it.”
Along with the recommendation from her sister, Oliver knew Gordon Cooper would help her reach her goals.
“It [Gordon Cooper] will help me get a head start for what I’m going to college for,” Oliver says. “I plan on completing my basics at Rose State before moving on to UCO to major in Criminal Justice.”
While Oliver is already working toward her future collegiate studies and career, she still has a pretty big goal she wants to achieve at Meeker.
“I want to medal at every meet,” she says. “I want to compete at state.”
Oliver will have several chances to achieve that goal. She competes in the 400 meters, 800 meters and is a part of multiple relay teams for Meeker.
Oliver ultimately wants to become a criminal investigator and she is confident her time at Gordon Cooper will help her achieve that goal.
