Education Committee approves Governor Stitt nominees to state Board
The Senate Education Committee on Tuesday advanced four of Governor
Stitt’s nominees to serve on the State Board of Education.
Senate President Pro Tempore Greg
Treat, R-Oklahoma City, carried the nominations of Estela Hernandez
and Jennifer Monies to the board.
“I’ve known both Estela Hernandez and Jennifer Monies
for years and know they are both successful and capable women who
are more than qualified to serve on the State Board of Education.
Governor Stitt made a great choice in selecting these two women
to serve because they will bring a new perspective, energy, and
high level of expectations for our entire educational system. I
know they both will work to focus Oklahoma education policy on students
where it belongs. I wholeheartedly support the nomination of Ms.
Hernandez and Ms. Monies and know they will do a great job for Oklahoma
students, parents, and educators as members of the State Board of
Education,” said Treat.
The Senate Education Committee also approved Governor Sitt’s
nominations of Brian Bobek and Barry “Kurt” Bollenbach
to serve on the board. All of the nominations now advance to the
full Senate for final consideration.
