State Superintendent Visits
Newly-elected Oklahoma State Superintendent of Public Instruction Ryan Walters, right, speaks to several local schools administrators in a meeting Friday afternoon at Kiamichi Tech. The meeting allowed the administrators in attendance to hear and discuss public school concerns and the strong priority of K-12 education with Gov. Kevin Stitt and Oklahoma legislators. Walters stated that it was a historic time for state schools to improve student outcomes especially with a stronger focus on providing more support to rural schools in Oklahoma. Kiamichi Tech-Poteau Campus Director Michael Caulwell and staff coordinated the meeting with Walters, who was introduced by District 5 Sen. George Burns.
