TULSA, OK -- Tulsa businesswoman Talia Shaull was sworn in Wednesday to the Tulsa Community College Board of Regents.
As a TCC regent, Shaull will be responsible for policy and oversight of Tulsa Community College. She was named to the position by Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry; however, her appointment must be approved by a vote of the full Oklahoma Senate.
"We are extremely pleased to have Ms. Shaull join our Board of Regents. Her experience and interests align very well with our efforts to provide education access and to serve individuals in our community who might not traditionally consider higher education within their reach," said Tom McKeon, president of Tulsa Community College.
Shaull is a program director for the Community Service Council of Greater Tulsa, a non-profit health and human services agency specializing in community planning and research. There she specializes in Hispanic education, cultural diversity, and workforce development initiatives.
She previously oversaw the development of maternal, child and family health initiatives for the Community Service Council including addressing the needs of Hispanic children.
Shaull is active in the Tulsa community and has served on the boards of Greater Tulsa Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Tulsa Latino Business Women. She has also been active with YWCA Tulsa and was a member of the 40th Leadership Tulsa Class.
She holds a Bachelor of Science in International Business from Oral Roberts University, and a Master of Science in Organizational Dynamics and Project Management from the University of Oklahoma.
