Hofmeister remarks on new appointments to State Board of Education


OKLAHOMA CITY (April 26, 2019) – State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister made the following statement today after Gov. Stitt announced four new appointments to the State Board of Education. Hofmeister chairs the board.

“General Lee Baxter, Cathy Franks, Bill Price and Bob Ross have served on the State Board with distinction, passion and genuine commitment to Oklahoma’s schoolchildren. I will miss working with each one, and I thank them for their service on the board,” Hofmeister said.

“At the same time, I am excited by the appointments announced today by Governor Stitt. I already have had the honor of working with Estela Hernandez and Jennifer Monies; I know both to be tireless and exceptional advocates for strong public education. I look forward to getting to know Brian Bobek and Kurt Bollenbach. We all have hard work ahead of us, but there is reason for great optimism.”
