(Oklahoma City, Oklahoma)... Bahamas Consul General Randy E. Rolle is already planning on making another trip to Oklahoma to visit with Bahamians he did not have the opportunity to meet on his first diplomatic trip to the state. Even though Rolle’s office is based in Atlanta, he represents Bahamians in over 10 states, including Oklahoma and those neighboring Georgia.

“I am so proud of the way Bahamians are representing us in the state of Oklahoma,” Rolle beamed. “I met with some students who are eager to graduate and share their skills with the nation, with those who are residents doing extremely well in their professions, and even a former student now a youth minister with a thriving ministry.”

“I have to thank our team who did a tremendous job getting the word out prior to our visit and being there to register Bahamians with our office once we arrived in Oklahoma,” said Rolle. “Many Bahamians did not know the Atlanta office represented Oklahoma and those we met expressed that they felt we made the effort to show how much we care by physically meeting with them and encouraging them to be in constant communication with us.”

Having already secured opportunities for Bahamians wishing to study in Atlanta, Rolle also had the opportunity to meet with executives at the University of Central Oklahoma to discuss potential alliances. The Bahamas Consul General was greeted to the UCO campus by Office of Global Affairs representatives Dennis Dunham, Ph.D Executive Director and Aaron Wheelbarger, Senior Advisor, International Admissions.

“I’m most excited about the potential partnership,” said Rolle of his meeting with the team. “Already, Bahamians have made their mark at this institution and we would love for that trend to continue. Overall though, this has been a successful trip and I am most excited to return in short order.”
