Perry Proctor, M.S.

as a long-standing tahlequah native and a proud member of the united keetoowah band, it is my honor to be an assistant professor, adjunct at bacone college in muskogee, oklahoma. in the past 40 years, i have served as a public servant on local, state, and federal law enforcement levels. on december 31, 2010, i retired from the bureau of indian affairs as a special agent. during my tenure, i worked as an instructor at the indian police academy in new mexico. i have served as a supervisory agent and instructor on many levels. i have had the privilege to work with many tribes across the united states and have seen both their successes and disappointments.

i have working knowledge in the area of self-governance, training, firearms, budget, and planning. i hope to bring this knowledge to the college so we can continue to grow and thrive as a level of higher learning. i am currently employed as a special investigator for the oklahoma state bureau of investigation, assigned as an intelligence officer for the oklahoma information fusion center in oklahoma city, oklahoma, i hold two degrees from northeastern state university, both a bachelors and a masters of science in criminal justice. i believe that education is one of the best things we can do for our people, it is one thing that cannot be taken from us. i hope to see more opportunities for our students to expand their education.

i am very proud of my family. my daughter, victoria holland is a tribal prosecutor for the comanche tribe in lawton, oklahoma, and my son, jake proctor is a family physician at the w.w. hastings hospital in tahlequah, oklahoma. my wife vickie is retired from education. she worked as an assistant principal at wagoner public schools. she works part-time as a school counselor at grand view school in tahlequah, oklahoma.

i believe in doing what is right and leading by example.
