Choctaw’s Diahn Citty – Character Counts Presented by Eskridge Honda

 

 

Diahn Citty is proud to be a graduate of the Choctaw High School class of 2019.

Citty has been involved in many activities during her time at Choctaw High including National Honor Society, key club, the biomedical science program, youth leadership exchange Oklahoma City, and was the Vice President of student council. One of her favorite things about getting to be involved in the Choctaw community is the leadership opportunities she got to embrace and the people she got to meet.

“I love that my school and community has such an inviting and close-knit nature,” she said. “I enjoy getting to see life from different perspectives and learning new things from leaders everywhere. I also love be able to be a mentor for others. My older friends got me involved in all of the activities I am in today.”

Citty would also encourage the remaining Choctaw students to branch out and give different things around campus a try.

“I would tell the underclassmen to get involved and out of their comfort zones,” she said. “Try new things and do not be afraid of what others think or failure.”

Citty is a self-motivated individual who says that her future is what motivates her to be her best at everything she does. One person who she admires as a role model is Clara Luper.

“Clara Luper is someone I look up to because of her resilience, bravery, and courageousness during the sit-ins in civil rights movement,” she said.

Now graduated, Citty plans to attend the University of Oklahoma as a part of the president’s leadership class and major in biology, pre-med.
