OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin has selected several Green Country educators to serve on an education advisory panel.

They will advise Fallin on education policy and assist in the governor's Oklahoma Works initiative. Oklahoma Works seeks to increase the number of students with "workforce credentials or associate degrees, as well as increasing the number of college graduates," according to the governmental website.

We want to make sure that K-12 schools, CareerTech and Higher Education all have a seat at the table as we work to improve educational outcomes,” Fallin said in a news release.

“Nothing is more important to Oklahoma's future than boosting educational attainment and ensuring our students get the education they need to succeed in the workforce."
