Retired General Tapped as Newest Regent (Apr 08, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — New Republican Gov. Mary Fallin has named a retired Army general to the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.

Fallin announced Friday the appointment of retired Maj. Gen. Toney Stricklin of Lawton to the seat representing the 4th Congressional District. He replaces Don Davis, whose term expired.

The nine-member board of gubernatorial appointees oversees the state's system of 25 colleges and universities.

Stricklin is a 32-year veteran of the Army and previously served on the State Board for Career and Technology Education and as chairman of the Information Technology Panel for the Economic Development Generating Excellence initiative.

During his military career he was commanding general of the Army's Field Artillery Center at Fort Sill and served a two-year term as civilian aide to the secretary of the Army for Oklahoma.
