Former Okla. City Mayor Set to Become OU Regent (Apr 09, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Former Oklahoma City Mayor Kirk Humphreys is set to be the newest member of the University of Oklahoma Board of Regents.

The Senate Education Committee voted unanimously on Monday to approve Humphreys' appointment to the seven-member governing body of OU, Cameron University in Lawton and Rogers State University in Claremore. His confirmation still must be approved by the full Senate.

Gov. Mary Fallin appointed Humphreys, a Republican, to replace Dr. John Bell, an ophthalmologist from Norman.

The 61-year-old Humphreys served as mayor of Oklahoma City from 1998 to 2003. He also ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate in 2004, losing in the Republican primary to current U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn.

Humphreys currently serves as chairman of an Oklahoma City-based real estate development company.
