September 28, 2021
Today, we honor and remember the incredible life of Dr. Keith Ballard.
For the past seven years, we have been honored to have Dr. Ballard's knowledge, expertise, and passion for education guiding the development and implementation of CIEDA's talent development efforts. Under his leadership, CIEDA's workforce portfolio has been recognized internationally as an industry leader.
Dr. Ballard spent his life dedicated to public service in education for five decades, serving as Superintendent of Claremore, Oologah-Talala and Tulsa Public Schools, Executive Director of the Oklahoma State School Boards Association, and on numerous other boards and leadership positions across the state. Thousands of students have been impacted because of his steadfast commitment and advocacy for education efforts in Oklahoma.
Our continued thoughts and prayers are with Dr. Ballard's beloved wife of 50 years, Christie, and the rest of his family during this challenging time. His legacy will be felt and continue to make a difference for generations to come.
