Alicia Priest Elected VP

Alicia Priest has been elected vice president of the Oklahoma Education Association by the organization's Board of Directors.

Priest will take office July 6. She will complete Linda Hampton's term, which expires in July 2012. Hampton recently became OEA's 96th president when Becky Felts resigned due to illness.

"Whether in the classroom or on the steps of the Capitol, Alicia is a champion for public education and will continue advocating for education and support professionals. It is a privilege to work with Alicia," Hampton said.

Priest has taught English Language Learners (ELL) and Spanish in Yukon for 16 years and is a former Parkland Elementary Teacher of the Year.

Most recently she served as a member of the National Education Association Board of Directors, representing OEA members in Washington, D.C. She was appointed by former Gov. Brad Henry to serve on the state Teacher and Leader Effectiveness Committee, and is the chairperson of the State Textbook Committee.

Priest has also served the Association as a local president as well as a member of the OEA Board of Directors.
