MIDWEST CITY — Jeanie Webb will be the seventh president of Rose State College, the college's Board of Regents announced Thursday.
Webb has served as the college's vice president of student affairs for 12 years. She will step into her new role July 1.
Webb replaces Terry Britton, who last year announced plans to retire at the end of the current academic year. Britton has been the college's president since 2006.
The Rose State College Board of Regents approved Webb's contract at a meeting Thursday. In a statement, board Chairman Joe Cole said he looks forward to working with Webb in her new role.
“Her broad background and experience in higher education administration, plus her energetic and enthusiastic approach to the development of new programs that will provide our students with the foundation needed to succeed in life, make her the ideal choice for this position,” Cole said.
Before coming to Rose State, Webb was a professor at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah.
She holds a bachelor's and a master's degree from NSU and a doctoral degree from Oklahoma State University. She was a Kellogg Fellow at the University of Oklahoma and did postdoctoral work at OU and Harvard University.
Webb is married to Roger Webb, former president of the University of Central Oklahoma.
