Oklahoma Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb Will Give 2014 Commencement Speech

Tulsa Community College announces Oklahoma Lt. Governor Todd Lamb will give the 2014 commencement address in front of what is expected to be a record setting number of TCC graduates.  The 44th annual TCC Commencement Ceremony is 7 p.m., Friday, May 9 at the Mabee Center at Oral Roberts University, 7777 South Lewis in Tulsa.

Early graduation numbers indicate TCC will exceed the number of degrees and certificates awarded in 2013 with nearly 1,000 graduates expected to participate in the commencement ceremony.  This graduation event recognizes students who completed course work in fall 2013 or will complete requirements for spring 2014 and summer 2014.

Lamb has served as Oklahoma’s Lt. Governor since November 2010.  He was appointed to the Governor’s cabinet as the advocate for Oklahoma’s small business.  With a focus on job growth and economic development, his commencement speech will congratulate the graduates and inspire them to be part of Oklahoma’s future by staying in Oklahoma to put their degree to use and build the state’s workforce.

He currently serves as Chair of the National Lieutenant Governor’s Association (NLGA) Executive Committee and Vice Chair of the Aerospace States Association (ASA).  Lamb is an Enid native and earned his bachelor’s degree from Oklahoma State University and his law degree from Oklahoma City University School of Law.

He served in the Oklahoma Senate beginning in 2004 and in 2009 he became the first Republican Majority Floor Leader in state history.  In addition, he was a Special Agent with the United States Secret Service and in early 2001 was appointed to the national Joint Terrorism Task Force.  He got his start working on the campaign staff for gubernatorial candidate Frank Keating and then worked in Keating’s administration.
