Financial advisor Cale Walker was appointed by Gov. Kevin Stitt to the University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma Board of Regents in 2019.
“USAO is one of four institutions in Oklahoma with a statewide mission,” said President John Feaver. “Our institution can only fulfill its distinct role as Oklahoma’s public liberal arts university and continue to grow our distinguished reputation thanks to the essential, often difficult, work that our regents never fail to approach with tenacity, pragmatism and an absolute dedication to seeing this university succeed. Cale brings a wealth of energy and ideas that will help us continue USAO’s success.”
Walker received a Bachelor of Science in agriculture leadership from Oklahoma State University. He went on to work as a legislative assistant for the Oklahoma House of Representatives and as a field representative for United States Senator Jim Inhofe before becoming a financial advisor with Edward Jones in 2014.
He is active in the community, serving on the Chickasha Public Schools Advisory Committee for Gifted and Talented Education, Salvation Army of Grady and Caddo counties, Chickasha Economic Development Council Sales Tax Oversight Committee, and Grady County Oklahoma State University Alumni Association.
Walker and his wife Mindy reside in Chickasha with their three children.
The Oklahoma State Legislature created USAO's seven-member Board of Regents to govern the institution as it carries out its distinct mission as the only public liberal arts institution within Oklahoma’s higher education system. The governor appoints each member to overlapping seven-year terms with the advice and consent of the Oklahoma Senate.
