Sen. Roland Pederson wins committee support for nomination of Stanley Brownlee and Jami Groendyke to the Northern Oklahoma College Board of Regents

Enid residents Stanley Brownlee and Jami Groendyke were approved Tuesday by the Senate Education Committee to serve five-year terms on the Board of Regents for Northern Oklahoma College (NOC).

Brownlee has served on the NOC Board of Regents since 2015 and has been nominated for a second term. He has worked as a Certified Professional Accountant (CPA) since 1970 and previously served as Harold Hamm’s personal asset manager for seven years. He is also a past president of the Enid Chamber of Commerce and St. Mary’s Hospital Board of Trustees.

“Stanley’s experience has made him a valuable member of the NOC Board of Regents,” Pederson said. “It is a high honor to be nominated for a second term on the Board, and I have no doubt he is deserving. The knowledge and passion Stanley brings to this position is invaluable to the college and its students.”

Groendyke is the managing partner of JRG Appraisals in Enid. She has years of experience in real estate, personal training, teaching and coaching.

“Jami’s broad experience makes her an expert in working with people,” Pederson said. “Her knowledge of multiple fields will be valuable in developing educational opportunities for both students and area residents who attend Northern Oklahoma College for their educational needs. It’s an honor to carry her appointment to the Board of Regents.”

Both Brownlee and Groendyke must now be confirmed by the full Senate.
