Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC) has a full roster on its Board of Regents, after Oklahoma Governor Stitt appointed Mrs. Mandy Hinkle to complete the term vacated by Dr. Raúl Font, who resigned last month.
“I recognize the value OCCC brings to our community, and feel very strongly that everyone should have access to a quality higher education,” said Mrs. Hinkle, who serves as the Senior Property Manager of the BancFirst Tower in Oklahoma City, and is employed by Price Edwards & Company. “Both of my daughters have attended OCCC, and I was able to witness firsthand the benefit and positive experience that they received. I look forward to contributing to the continued growth and success of the college.”
Mrs. Hinkle graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in Organizational Leadership from Southern Nazarene University, and she lives in South Oklahoma City, where she and her husband are active in local and state activities. She has almost 20 years of experience managing large commercial real estate properties and organizations focusing on operations, facilities management, development, and asset management. Her oversight of the administration and operations of the BancFirst Tower included its more than $100 million renovation.
“We’re delighted to have another South OKC resident on our Board of Regents,” said OCCC Interim President Dr. Jeremy Thomas. “Our mission is to ensure student success and enrich our community, and thanks to Regent Hinkle and our other distinguished Regents, we’re in a great position to fulfill that mission.”
With more than 60 majors to choose from, and more than 40 student-led clubs and organizations, OCCC offers an affordable, accredited college education to more than 17,000 students annually, and serves thousands more in non-credit classes and programs. OCCC offers associate degrees, certifications and leadership opportunities to all Oklahomans, whoever they are, whomever they love, wherever they’ve been and wherever they’re going.
