Roger Webb Speaks To The Rotary Club Of Edmond
Roger Webb, a fellow member of the Rotary Club of Edmond, needs no introduction. Recently retired from his service as the 19th President of the University of Central Oklahoma, Roger guided the campus through some of its grandest changes. Just think about the Forensic Center, the Forensic Science Institute and Central Plaza, not to mention the Jazz Lab and ACM@UCO, two off-campus destinations.
Roger now serves as Vice Chairman of Citizens Bank of Edmond, and has been a member of that institution’s Board of Directors since 2001. But Roger’s service to Oklahoma began long ago. He began his career in law enforcement with the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety for 12 years, and served as Oklahoma’s Commissioner of Public Safety from 1974-1978. He was president of Northeastern State University in Tahlequah from 1978-1997. And in June 1997, Webb was named president of UCO.
He has served on boards of directors of numerous organizations, including the Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism, the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, the Edmond Chamber of Commerce, and Mercy Hospital. He previously served as President and Board Chair of the Oklahoma Academy and was a member of the Board of Directors of Leadership Oklahoma. In 1995, he was named to the Oklahoma Higher Education Hall of Fame. And in 2010, Roger was named Edmond’s Citizen of the Year.
Webb grew up in eastern Oklahoma, and graduated from Heavener High School. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Oklahoma State University and graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Law.
Please welcome our fellow Edmond Rotarian, Roger Webb, as our special guest speaker.
