OKCPS Deputy Superintendent Jason Brown to be Inducted

Oklahoma City Public Schools (OKCPS) is proud to share that Jason Brown, the district’s Deputy Superintendent, has been selected as a 2023 inductee into the Oklahoma African American Educators’ (OAAE) Hall of Fame. The ceremony will take place September 29 at the Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City.

The OAAE Hall of Fame Board of Directors and President Dr. Donnie L. Nero Sr. selected inductees based on the following qualifications:

  • Resided in Oklahoma during their career in education
  • Worked as an administrator, teacher or as support personnel for a minimum of five years
  • Contributed to and influenced the education and lives of students
  • Professionally distinguished in the field of education

OKCPS Board Chair Paula Lewis said, “It is an honor to have Jason Brown at OKCPS. We get to witness the impact he has on students’ lives. This recognition is well-deserved.”

“I am always excited when someone else recognizes what we see in one of our own. Jason is an influential leader and an integral part of Team OKCPS,” added OKCPS Superintendent Dr. Sean McDaniel. “We are thrilled that he is being inducted into the Oklahoma African American Educators’ Hall of Fame.”

“The thought of being inducted into OAAE’s Hall of Fame is surreal.  I am truly honored,” said Brown. “I have been fortunate throughout my career to work with wonderful students and absolutely amazing colleagues who pushed me to be a better educator. This honor speaks more to the exceptional teams that I've been a part of and the students who rose to the occasion than it does about anything that I've personally done. I have been blessed beyond measure."
