Kendria is currently the Director of the OSU Center for Pet Therapy and enjoys serving campus with her therapy dog, Charlie.  She became involved in the Coaches vs Cancer program shortly after its inception and worked closely with Coach Sutton to help build the program.  Her life has been forever changed by the many cancer survivors and their families who have participated in various OSU events, as well as by the many coaches and student athletes who have given selflessly of their time.  Every survivor and every family is special, but Morgan "The Totally Awesome" Mitchell made a forever imprint on her heart.  Morgan battled cancer for seven years and attended many OSU Coaches vs Cancer events.  She never stopped smiling, she never stopped caring about others and she never let cancer define her.  She passed away at the age of 19 and not a day goes by that she is not remembered.   Kendria is honored to help expand the Cowboys vs Cancer program and she is excited about the future of the Foundation.  She is humbled to play a small part in continuing the legacy of Coach Sutton through a cause that was so meaningful to him and to so many others.

Katie Terrell Schofield was born in Oklahoma City, grew up in Tulsa, OK and graduated from OSU’s award-winning School of Accounting. Katie is a retired CPA who worked in the Washington DC area for over twenty-five years and also consulted across the country. As a 40-year cancer survivor and having lost a father, mother-in-law and other friends and family members to cancer, Katie has been involved in many cancer support organizations over the years, including: the LIVESTRONG Foundation (TX), Oklahoma State’s Coaches versus Cancer Campaign (OK), the Washington DC Leukemia Ball (DC), Friends Fighting Cancer Organization (VA), and Living Journeys (CO). 

As a grateful cancer survivor and proud OSU alum, Katie is honored to be on the Board of The Eddie Sutton Foundation and continue expanding the cancer support programs that Coach Sutton started in the 1990s. As Katie was diagnosed with cancer in 1982 when “cancer” was not spoken about and the only support was a 2-page pamphlet from the American Cancer Society, she is very grateful that the Eddie Sutton Foundation provides many programs to support those impacted by cancer. Katie’s dream is that cancer will one day be eradicated. But until then, Katie is blessed to be involved with such a worthy organization that provides vital support to cancer warriors, their family and friends.

Katie and her husband, Scott, live in Mount Crested Butte, CO where they enjoy hiking, biking, snowshoeing, skiing, clearing their driveway of snow and exploring the beauty of Colorado.

Kurtis joined the OSU Cowboys vs. Cancer Golf Tournament Executive Board in 2016. Kurtis’ passion for CVC and cancer research derives from his memories of Anna-Britta Thompson, a close friend and classmate who valiantly battled brain cancer. Britta tragically passed away during their sophomore year.

 

“Watching Britta and her family fight the disease and seeing how it affected our entire community helped me to understand the value and need for organizations like The Eddie Sutton Foundation and CVC. It is impactful that we are giving people — especially kids — going through treatment a positive outlook and the chance to feel ‘normal’ while attending games or meeting athletes and coaches. They get to feel special and celebrated at the OSU CVC sponsored events. I volunteer with the hope that research will eradicate the disease, but I’m also driven by the joy we provide to families who need it the most.”

 

Kurtis works in the Office of Trademark and Licensing at Oklahoma State University. He enjoys golfing, attending OSU events with his wife, Amanda, and coaching their two sons, Konnor, and Reed in various sports. The couple recently added Spike, a ferocious miniature poodle, to their family. Originally from Kansas, the Masons have called Stillwater home for the past 12 years.

Dave Hunziker is in his 21st season as the radio voice of Oklahoma State football and basketball, and his seventh season as OSU’s baseball television voice.  He also serves as an adjunct instructor in the Paul Miller School of Media and Strategic Communications at Oklahoma State.

 

Dave Hunziker has served on the OSU Cowboy Classic executive team since the event’s inception and has served as the spokesperson for the OSU Coaches vs. Cancer program for the past 16 years.  Both of Hunziker’s parents, Paul and Charlotte Hunziker, died of cancer at ages 54 and 65.  He lost his maternal grandfather, Boyd LeFevre, to pancreatic cancer, and one of his closest childhood friends, Kevin Martin, passed away from colon cancer at age 39 in January, 2006.

Collin Walker is an Assistant Athletic Director- Compliance for OSU Athletics, a position he has held since 2017.  A Stillwater native, he graduated from Stillwater HS in 2000 and OSU in 2005.  From 2002-2007 Walker was blessed with the opportunity to be on the staffs of Coach Eddie and Sean Sutton, starting as a volunteer student manager and ending as a graduate assistant.  It was during this impressive time that the Cowboys reached a Final Four, Sweet Sixteen, compiled an overall record of 118-50 and a dominant home-court record of 67-11!  In addition to his managerial duties, Collin was often at McDonald’s picking up Coach Sutton’s lunch; his go-to was the Homestyle Burger meal, occasionally with a cherry or apple pie.   

 

Collin lost his maternal grandfather to lung cancer, an aunt to triple-negative breast cancer.  His father, a retired OSU Associate Dean for Extension/College of Arts & Sciences is in remission from hurthle cell carcinoma.

Steve is a lifelong Oklahoma resident. Together with his wife Kathy of 35 years, they are proud parents of their two grown children Mary (Colin Ogilvie) and Zachary (Lesa).  

Steve has had a multi-tiered career in business which led him to own and operate a family real estate business in Oklahoma City managing property acquired in the Land Run of 1889.

Cancer impacts us all.  Steve’s mother Mary (Corff) (‘64) and father Jean (’87) both passed from cancer early in his life.  And his wife Kathy survived her fight in 2019. These events led him to be passionate about sharing his blessings with families who are struggling with the fight.  He has been a supporter of Cancer research funding for over 30 years.

 “I am proud to be part of a group of passionate people in an organization dedicated to providing a positive experience for families who are in this fight.”

Larry Reece is the Senior Associate Athletic Director for Development, OSU Athletics.  Larry has helped with the most transformational period in OSU Athletics history, being part of more than $600 million in facility improvements for Cowboy and Cowgirl student athletes. 

 

Larry, originally from Miami, Oklahoma, attended Oklahoma State University and was named the outstanding graduating senior for the School of Broadcast Journalism in 1993.

 

Larry is probably best known as “the Stadium and Arena Voice” of OSU Athletics.  He has been the Public Address Announcer for all OSU football and basketball games since 1991. Larry has helped coin OSU phrases such as “Here comes Bullet,” “They call him Big Country,” and “Welcome to Gallagher-Iba Arena...the rowdiest arena in the country.”

 

Larry, a throat cancer survivor himself, takes great pride in the creation of the Eddie Sutton Foundation. He has enjoyed his involvement with OSU Coaches vs. Cancer and is excited about the expansion of OSU Cowboys vs Cancer which will involve all sports at Oklahoma State. 

 

An Oklahoma State University graduate with a bachelor’s degree in biology, Kim is the daughter-in-law of the late Coach Eddie Sutton and wife of Eddie’s youngest son, Scott. Kim will help carry on Coach Sutton's philanthropic legacy by serving as a family representative on the Eddie Sutton Foundation Board. Eddie always said that cancer is an awful disease and almost everyone is affected by it; likewise, cancer hit close to home when Kim lost her own father to glioblastoma, an aggressive form of cancer, in 2016. Like Coach Sutton's entire family, Kim is committed to supporting and extending Coach Sutton's legacy in the fight against cancer and other philanthropic efforts. To this end, Kim brings to the Board a wealth of philanthropic experience and a lifelong desire to help others, as exhibited by her decision to continue her education by earning an advanced degree in physical therapy, as well as by her involvement in many volunteer organizations over the years. A few of these include: Tulsa Boys Home, board member of the National Charity League, Tulsa Midtown Chapter; and a current Ambassador at the Saint Francis Children’s Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Kim also takes pride in being a part of Pete’s Pet Posse, whose mission is to enhance the well-being of the Cowboy family, with her therapy dog, Oakley Rose. Kim is employed by Phoenix Rehab as a Physical Therapist at Primrose Retirement Community in Stillwater.

Always a Cowboy, Scott graduated from Sulphur High School and attended Oklahoma State University.  He was fortunate and privileged to represent OSU as Pistol Pete.  Scott graduated with a Journalism degree in 1981.  He was a reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Tulsa Tribune before going to law school at Oral Roberts University.  Scott has served as a Bankruptcy Trustee since 1988; and represents creditors and debtors in bankruptcy courts in Oklahoma, Louisiana and Delaware.

 

Scott met his wife, Deidra, at OSU when she needed the Cowboy football team’s starting lineup for a Daily O’Collegian advertising display.  Scott is most proud of Deidra who is the Executive Director for Resonance Center for Women.  They have four children; Katie is a podiatrist in Tampa, Conner is an attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s office in Laredo, and Cale is in sales in Tulsa, and Korie graduates from law school in 2022.

 

Scott believes the most courageous Kirtley is his nephew, Branen, who survived a 39-month battle with leukemia at age 15.  Because of Branen and the many who are affected by cancer, it is an honor being part of The Eddie Sutton Foundation in its mission to strike down cancer.
