OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt has announced his appointments, pending state Senate approval, of three state agency directors who have been serving as interim directors.

Stitt on Thursday named Dr. Lance Frye as state health commissioner; Rachel Holt director of juvenile affairs; and Carrie Slatton-Hodges as commissioner of mental health and substance abuse services.

Frye has been interim commissioner of health since May 22; Holt was named interim director of the office of juvenile affairs on March 5; and Slatton-Hodges became interim commissioner of mental health and substance abuse services on Jan. 28.
