OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City University has named its first woman president in its 114-year history.

The Oklahoman reports that Board of Trustees Chairman Ron Norick announced Sunday that Trustee Martha Burger will become the 18th president of the university July 1. She’ll succeed Robert Henry, who will retire June 30.

Henry says he’s pleased Burger will take over after his departure. He says she’s “been an active trustee and a strong advocate for OCU for many years.”

Burger has served as senior vice president of human and corporate resources at Chesapeake Energy Corp. She earned her MBA from Oklahoma City University in 1992 and was awarded an honorary doctorate of humane letters in 2012.

Burger has been on the university’s Board of Trustees since 2008 and chairs its audit and finance committee.
