Since 1980, Riggs served as a teacher, counselor, assistant principal and principal in the Edmond, Deer Creek and Norman school districts.

From 2006-08, Riggs served as an adjunct instructor at UCO.

“I'm excited to move into this position. It's truly an honor,” Riggs said. “My career has taken me to three districts, and I am humbled to have this opportunity in my hometown.”

Riggs said she has learned a great deal from her predecessor, Lynne Rowley, who will retire as executive director of elementary education in July after holding several district positions for a total of 41 years.

“She's done a tremendous job, and I've learned a lot from her,” Riggs said.

Rowley praised Riggs as an “outstanding” administrator who is well-suited to her new role.

“She is respected by her peers and the school community,” Rowley said. “Her wealth of experience and knowledge makes her an ideal choice for the executive director position.”
