Despite repeated requests, Langston officials will not disclose King's employment status at the university. In his capacity as vice president, King was or is involved with recruiting, marketing and fundraising for the university and maintaining the university's relationships with alumni.
According to online state employment records posted in March — the most recent month available — King's annual salary is just shy of $100,000, although on the university's website, the page titled “VP for Institutional Advancement & Development” does not include a listing or mention of King.
King also served as director of the Langston Community Development Association and was involved with the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity.
According to a 2010 Alpha Phi Alpha regional newsletter, King served as a chairman of the Alpha Youth Leadership Academy, a program that brings teenage boys to campus during the summer.
An up-to-date telephone listing for King could not be found.
