OSSM will celebrate the retirement of Frank Wang, Ph.D., as president of the School on Friday, June 3, at 5 p.m. While he will no longer hold the president position, he plans to continue teaching at the state’s leading public and STEM high school.
The event will be held on campus and will include many surprises related to Dr. Wang’s immense contributions to the school.
Appointed in 2012, Dr. Wang is the school’s second president since its inception in 1983. Under his leadership, contributions to the OSSM Foundation Faculty Endowment increased from $4.2 million to $10 million. This fund was established to achieve long-term stability for the school and to ensure the recruitment and retention of the exceptional caliber of faculty it has employed since its opening.
Additionally, Dr. Wang was instrumental in creating a program for international students to attend OSSM, resulting in more than $500,000 in revenue for the school and launched summer residential programs that brought in hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue. He has also traveled throughout Oklahoma to provide free math instruction to middle school students, an important project following an extended period of virtual instruction due to the global pandemic of 2020.
