Tulsa Tech Honors Elected School Board Members

School Board Recognition Month was held in January and was an opportunity for local schools and communities to honor Oklahoma’s more than 2,700 elected school board members for their dedication to education, children and the communities that they serve. The commitment of the Tulsa Tech Board of Education is evident, and showcased within the world-class training facilities where our students learn and train each day.
“Providing our community with exceptional career and technical education opportunities is one of the most important investments we can make,” said Dr. Steve Tiger, CEO and Superintendent of Tulsa Tech. “We’re very proud of our district’s accomplishments, and School Board Recognition Month is a time to say thank you to our elected board members for their passion, commitment and support of our mission, educating people for success in the workplace.” 
At Tulsa Tech, school board members develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues impacting the district, leading business partners, community leaders and other constituents. They bear responsibility for nearly 6,000 full-time students, over 12,000 part-time evening and weekend adult students, more than 1,100 corporate training clients, and over 600 employees across six campuses.
The men and women serving Tulsa Tech as elected school board members are Rick Kibbe, Mark Griffin, David Charney, Danny Hancock, Sharon Whelpley, Dr. Jim Baker and Rev. Ray Owens, Ph.D.
