Jacob Osifeso, Cierra Tunley Named Seniors of the Month for November
Jacob Osifeso and Cierra Tunley have been named Seniors of the Month for November for Union High School, 6636 S. Mingo Road. Jacob is the son of Yinka and Eniola Osifeso, of Broken Arrow; and Cierra is the daughter of Geronn Tunley and Crystal Johnson, of Tulsa.
Jason Osifeso is active in Sustainable U’s campus clean-up projects, Asian American Club, Mu Alpha Theta, Changemakers, Mr. Highstepper and the UHype production crew, as well as an audio-visual aide at his church, and volunteers for Hardesty Library, Moving Up sixth grade orientation, DREAM Center and the YMCA basketball coaching program. He is president of the Nigerian Student Association; an officer with UHype, and a member of the United Nigerian Association of Tulsa.
Osifeso, who describes himself as a leader, coaches boys, ages 9 and 10, in basketball at the YMCA. “These kids are like little brothers to me,” he said. “We’ve been through a lot together from injuries, championships and losses – so we are bonded. We recently won the championship and I am so proud of them.”
Osifeso said he has enjoyed his marketing production class at the high school a lot. “This class is a class I look forward to daily. It is the true highlight of my day. When I enter the class, I am just surrounded by a class of people I would call family.” Osifeso plans to attend college and major in computer science with dreams of owning his own cybersecurity company.
Cierra Tunley is active in golf, Leadership, National Honor Society, Student-Athlete Advisory Council, and Sustainable U, and has volunteered her time at Union elementary schools and packing medial supplies. Honors include Academic All-Conference, Rep The U, Rising Star and winning first place in the First Tee Tournament. She is also publicist for the senior class.
“One thing that I’m involved in and really passionate about is golf,” she said. “Playing in this sport has made me the person that I am. It was a reality check for me and made me change my ways of thinking about school and people. Without golf as my anchor, I don’t know where I would be.”
Tunley plans to attend Sterling College and major in kinesiology and exercise science. She hopes to study chiropractic medicine and obtain her license.
