Mouser sworn in as member of the Eastern Oklahoma State College Board of Regents
Williams recognized for 14 years of service to the college
WILBURTON, OK (June 23, 2015) – Bobby Mouser of Stigler was recently appointed to serve a seven-year term as a new member of the Eastern Oklahoma State College Board of Regents. He was sworn in at the Board’s June meeting by Oklahoma Associate District Judge Bill Welch.
“As an Eastern alumnus, Bobby understands our students, our institution and the communities we serve,” said Eastern President Dr. Stephen E. Smith. “We look forward to Regent Mouser’s leadership and contributions to our Board as we continually work to create valuable learning opportunities and enrich the lives of our students.”
Mouser has served as the city manager of Stigler since January. He also serves as the general manager of the Stigler Municipal Improvement Authority, director of Economic Development and manager of the Stigler Regional Airport. Mouser retired in 2015 from the Public Service Company of Oklahoma after 35 years of service in managerial roles in areas including commercial/industrial sales, customer service and marketing.
After graduating from Eastern, Mouser earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Southeastern Oklahoma State University. He is also a graduate of the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration at the University of Virginia.
Mouser said his connections to Eastern run deep. Not only are he and his wife, Vicki, Eastern alumni, but two of their three children also graduated from the college.
The membership of the Eastern Board of Regents is made up of seven people appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the senate. Senator Larry Boggs of Red Oak carried Gov. Mary Fallin’s nomination of Mouser to the Senate Education Committee for confirmation.
"We appreciate Gov. Fallin for her nomination of Regent Mouser, as well as Senator Boggs for carrying the nomination forward to the Senate Education Committee," Smith said.
Mouser replaces Burl Williams of Stigler who completed his second seven-year term this year. Smith expressed his gratitude to Williams for serving two back-to-back terms.
“Burl’s dedication and service to this college for the past 14 years cannot be overstated,” Smith said. “Regent Williams has been a great asset to our Board and we appreciate his many contributions to the success of Eastern. He will be sorely missed.”
Other regents include Chair Teresa Jackson of Hartshorne, Vice Chair Brian Lott of McAlester, Dr. Monte McAlester of Wilburton, Denton McNutt of Stuart, Loise Washington of McAlester, and Carl D. Wooldridge of Wilburton.
