Frank S. Coulter

(Continued)

NORMAN —

Under his leadership, Moore-Norman gained a national reputation as a premier technology center. It developed an educational curriculum that met the needs of career and college-bound students, as well as providing technical and management skills training for hundreds of local businesses. During his administration, the center’s enrollment regularly topped 20,000 annually. He oversaw five major expansions of the physical plant at the center’s main campus, more than tripling the facility’s size. He also initiated the purchase and development of the South Penn campus in Moore. Frank was a leader statewide in the maintenance and growth of the Oklahoma Technology Centers throughout the state, having many positions in the statewide organization.

Frank was very active in the community. He was campaign chairman of the United Way of Norman, president of the Norman Rotary Club, district governor of Rotary District 5770, chairman of the Cleveland County Chapter of the American Red Cross and president of the Norman Chamber of Commerce.

He was predeceased by his parents and brother, Bernard.

Frank is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Sheryl (Breaux) Coulter. The marriage produced three sons, Michael (Debbie), John (Kay) and Kelly (Lori). He is also survived by five grandchildren, Josh, John, Brady, Devin and Christian.

Contributions may be made to the Frank S. Coulter Foundation Scholarship at the Moore Norman Technology Center, P.O. Box 4701, Norman, OK 73070, Attn.: Debi Waldroop.

Arrangements for Frank and his family were placed in the care of the Vice family at Havenbrook Funeral Home in Norman.
