Hello! My name is Joy Tribbey and I am honored to be a part of McAlester Public Schools Board of Education. I was born and raised in McAlester and am a 1993 graduate of McAlester High School. I hold a Bachelor's of Science in Organizational Leadership and a Master of Education degree with an emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction from Southeastern Oklahoma State University. I worked for McAlester Public Schools for 16 years before moving to a Project Director position with the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. I am married to my husband, Gaylon and we have a son, Creede who is a student at McAlester. Great things are happening here and I am so proud of our board, students, staff, faculty, and administration. Once a buffalo, always a buffalo!
