Congratulations to Oklahoma's New Chancellor
Congratulations to former Speaker of the House, now President of Southeastern Oklahoma State University, Glen D. Johnson on selection as Oklahoma's Chancellor of the State Regents for Higher Education. Johnson is a long time champion of public education and is expected to lead the state's higher education system with great expertise and passion.
While the students and faculty at SEOSU will miss him, students and faculty from across the state will benefit from his informed and reasonable leadership.
(I recently had the privilege of being a guest lecturer for a class he teaches at SEOSU. From our short visit then I could tell he is bound to make Oklahoma's second century a great success for higher education.)
