Fallin Announces Appointments To Okla. Panels

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Gov. Mary Fallin has appointed several people to state panels that oversee wildlife, land conservation, education and nursing.

Fallin's office announced five appointments on Monday, including Okmulgee banker Bruce Mabry, who was reappointed to an eight-year term on the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Fallin named Granite farm owner Dean Gramann to complete an unexpired term on the Oklahoma Conservation Commission and nominated him for a new five-year term to begin next year.

She appointed Yukon tag agency owner James Kitch to a second seven-year term on the Redlands Community College Board of Trustees, and Tecumseh trucking company executive Randy Gilbert to the State Board of Career and Technology Education.

Senate confirmation of those appointees is required.

Fallin also named Renae Sexton of Apache to the Oklahoma Board of Nursing.
