OKLAHOMA CITY – State Rep. Mark McBride, R-Moore, on Thursday was recognized by the Oklahoma Education Association (OEA) with the Outstanding Legislator Award for 2020.
The organization, which represents teachers in working with state and local government agencies as well as with lawmakers and the governor, said it selected McBride because of his outstanding support of public education and public educators.
“I’m appreciative to be recognized for my legislative work to ensure Oklahoma public school students have the very best education possible,” McBride said. “During this time of uncertainty and change, it is more important than ever that all education stakeholders come together to work for what is best for Oklahoma students. Making sure students have access to highly qualified teachers and up-to-date classroom materials and resources improves their academic success and prepares them to be productive members of society.”
“We may have disagreements at times over our approaches,” McBride said, “but at the end of the day if students receive the best education possible, it is worth it.”
