Incident involving OC recruiter receiving national attention

An incident at a local high school involving an Oklahoma Christian University recruiter is receiving nationwide publicity. 

On Monday, Feb. 24, Oklahoma Christian admissions counselor Cedric Sunray visited Harding Charter Preparatory High School on a regular recruiting visit. Instead of sharing information about the university, Sunray instigated an activity where students were forced to separate based on skin color and hair texture. Sunray and Oklahoma Christian parted ways shortly after this incident, according to university officials. 

The New York Times published an article Tuesday detailing the incident. With permission, a Talon photograph is featured alongside the story. 

CNN, Fox News and CBS News have also published stories about the incident in recent days. Several of these articles cite a Talon report from President deSteiguer’s open meeting with Oklahoma Christian students and faculty members Sunday, March 1. 

In a statement issued yesterday to The Christian Chronicle, Sunray said his only regret is not better explaining the activity to students and teachers. He claims to have done the same activity 87 times in 2020 alone. 

In an interview with KFOR which aired Monday evening, Sunray said he has already found employment at another Oklahoma City area university and plans to continue doing the activity.
