Chad Dillingham of Enid took the oath of office as a member of the Northern Oklahoma College Board of Regents at the July Regents’ meeting at NOC Enid. District Judge Paul K. Woodward administered the oath.
Dillingham is president and co-owner of Dillingham Insurance in Enid. He’ll serve a five-year term as Regent, succeeding Keith James of Pond Creek. James was honored at the same meeting for his 20 years of service on the Board by naming their meeting room G 102 in Gantz Center the “James Room.”
Also in that meeting, Dr. Rick Edgington, vice president for enrollment, presented preliminary figures for fall enrollment. Retention rates are 85.91 percent for Tonkawa and 79.36 percent for Enid, which Edgington says is “very high for a community college.
The Regents also approved the 2016-17 Employee Handbook, the 2016-2017 Institutional Assessment Plan and the 2017 NOC Board of Regents meeting dates.
The Board of Regents will not meet in August. The next meeting is set for September 21 at NOC Enid.
