TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The Tulsa Community College Board of Regents has named Leigh Goodson the fourth president in the school’s history and its first female leader.

The TCC board voted Tuesday to offer the position to Goodson following a seven-month search for a successor to current President Thomas McKeon. Goodson is expected to start the first week in July.

She currently is vice president for Research and Institutional Advancement at the Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences.

McKeon has announced plans to retire at the end of June. He launched the Tulsa Achieves program that has resulted in the admission of more than 10,000 students in seven years without the cost of tuition and fees.

TCC has nearly 29,000 students enrolled in credit classes each year.
