Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt is appointing a new education secretary. Stitt has named Katherine Curry as education secretary, and she will oversee more than 40 boards, agencies and commissions. Curry replaces Ryan Walters, who is serving as Oklahoma State Superintendent.
"Katherine brings a wealth of experience to oversee the many different areas of education across the state, including higher education and career tech. I look forward to her leadership and service as we work towards making Oklahoma a Top Ten state in education," said Governor Stitt.
"I'm excited to partner with Governor Stitt in his pursuit of making Oklahoma Education Top Ten," said Dr. Curry. "Oklahoma has some of the best teachers in the nation, and I look forward to walking alongside these educators to continue creating the strongest educational ecosystem in the country."
