STILLWATER — Northern Oklahoma College has selected Sherry Alexander as the new Vice President for NOC Stillwater.
Alexander’s official start date is Jan. 16.
Alexander comes from Rogers State University, where she currently serves as Director of Rogers State University’s Pryor campus.
“It is a privilege and an honor to be joining the NOC Team under the leadership of President Evans,” Alexander said. “I am excited to have the opportunity to work with the exceptional faculty and staff at NOC Stillwater and be a part of their life changing commitment to our students. I look forward to meeting and working with all of the great people at NOC, OSU, and the Stillwater Community.”
Northern Oklahoma College President Dr. Cheryl Evans said she is excited for Alexander to join the NOC team.
“We are excited to have Sherry Alexander join Northern,” Dr. Evans said. “She has the experience and qualifications to excel as the Vice President of NOC Stillwater. I believe that our students, employees, and partners will all appreciate working with Sherry to achieve the goals of the NOC/OSU Gateway program.”
Born and raised in Oklahoma, Alexander served Rogers State University 13 years as a branch campus administrator at Rogers State University’s Pryor Campus in the Mid America Industrial Park. In this position, Alexander has been very active in the community serving on several boards including the Chamber of Commerce and the Northeast Oklahoma Regional Alliance. She has also assisted in creating youth STEM programs with partners such as Google and DuPont.
Alexander received a master’s degree in Higher Education Leadership from Oklahoma State University, her bachelors in Communications from Rogers State University, and an associate degree from NEO A&M College in Miami, Oklahoma.
Alexander is from a small farm town and began her education at a two-year college, so she is passionate about Oklahoma’s two-year institutions and the access they provide to rural Oklahoma students. Two of her children attended NOC Stillwater while pursuing their college degrees.
She and her husband have four children, four grandchildren and an adopted Schnauzer named Sunny. She and her husband currently reside in Pryor, but as loyal OSU fans, consider Stillwater their second home.
Alexander replaces Dr. Shannon Cunningham who is leaving NOC Stillwater to become Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Student Success at Richland College in Dallas, Texas. Cunningham came to NOC Stillwater in July 2015.
