Governor Mary Fallin Appoints Jarold Callahan to the Board of Regents for Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical Colleges

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 06:05:13 CST

Governor Mary Fallin Appoints Jarold Callahan to the Board of Regents for Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical Colleges Governor Mary Fallin announced Thursday she is appointing Jarold Callahan to the Board of Regents for Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical Colleges. He will replace Andy Lester, who resigned after being appointed to the Oklahoma Regents for Higher Education.

Callahan, of Edmond, will join the board on May 17, once Lester’s resignation is effective. He will serve the remainder of Lester’s term, which expires in 2018, if his appointment is confirmed by the Senate.

“Jarold is a lifelong rancher with experience in education at the university level, so he will be a valuable addition to the Board of Regents for Oklahoma A&M Colleges,” said Fallin.

Callahan, who was born on a ranch in Welch, has 36 years of executive leadership experience. He currently is president of Express Ranches, a large commercial ranching operation headquartered in Yukon. He started his career there in 1996 as chief operations officer.

Callahan spent 15 years as an educator, starting at Northeastern Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College in 1976. He was chairman of the agriculture division there for two years before moving to Oklahoma State University in 1982. Callahan was an assistant professor in OSU’s animal science department until 1991.

Callahan graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree in animal science in 1976, when he was honored as one of the top 10 students in the university’s College of Agriculture. He also earned a master’s degree in agriculture from the University of Arkansas in 1980.

Callahan has been a member of the American Angus Association board of directors since 2005, including a stint as president from 2011-2012. He has also served on the Oklahoma Beef Council and as executive vice president of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association from 1991 to 1996.

The Board of Regents for Oklahoma A&M Colleges supervises Connors State College, Langston University, Northeastern Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College, Oklahoma Panhandle State University and Oklahoma State University and its constituent agencies.
