Former Representative Betty Boyd Appointed

Former legislator and journalist Betty Boyd has been appointed by Gov. Brad Henry to Oklahoma State University-Tulsa’s Board of Trustees.
Boyd was elected to the Oklahoma House of Representatives in 1990 and served a total of 10 years in the legislature. She co-authored Senate Bill 1426, the 1998 legislation that created OSU-Tulsa, with then Senator Charles R. Ford.
“As a legislator, Ms. Boyd played a significant role in the creation of OSU-Tulsa, which led the way for public higher education opportunities in Tulsa. Eleven years later, we are honored to have her leadership on the Board to help guide OSU-Tulsa into the future,” said OSU-Tulsa President Gary Trennepohl.
A native Tulsan, Boyd is a graduate of Central High School. She began her career as an on-air journalist for KOTV Channel 6. Later, she spent more than 15 years at KTUL Channel 8, before leaving the television news industry after 25 years to join the education field. She spent 10 years as the director of information services for the Tulsa County Area Vocational-Technical School District, now known as Tulsa Tech, and currently serves as vice chair of their Board of Education.
