Roger Webb to retire as U. of Central Oklahoma president in June
January 20, 2011
W. Roger Webb announced his retirement Wednesday as president of the University of Central Oklahoma. His last day will be June 30.
“I am leaving at a time when the image, reputation of the university, and the capacity and depth of talented faculty, administration and staff of Central has never been higher,” Webb said.
“The exciting thing is that Central’s greatest days are just ahead. I have the greatest confidence in the Regional University System of Oklahoma Board of Regents to choose a successor who will lead Central to new heights of excellence.”
Webb said he looks forward to spending more time with his daughter Anna Grace and his wife Jeanie, and upon retirement, has the opportunity to accept an executive position with Citizens Bank of Edmond.
“Over the holidays, Jeanie and I together decided that now is the time for me to step down. We love Central and have so many wonderful friends and colleagues here. This has not been an easy decision,” Webb said.
