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.

Wa-Do, Perry Proctor, M.S.
