Marion Prichard

A faculty member who has served 40 years at Southwestern Oklahoma State University will be honored at a retirement party this Tuesday, May 5, on the Weatherford campus.

Marion Prichard, coordinator of allied health sciences, is retiring from SWOSU and will be honored at the come-and-go party from 1:30-3 p.m. in the President’s Conference Room in the Administration Building.

The public is invited to attend the event to honor Prichard for her long-time service to SWOSU.

Prichard, who has two degrees from SWOSU, joined the SWOSU faculty in 1975 to coordinate efforts to move the Health Information Management 3+1 program in conjunction with Hillcrest Medical Center in Tulsa to a campus-based program. 

She has served on numerous SWOSU committees and task forces including president and secretary-treasurer of the Faculty Senate.  She has been on the Board of Directors of the Oklahoma Health Information Management Association (OkHIMA) for many years, serving as president on two separate occasions.  She received recognition as the outstanding member of OkHIMA in 1992 and 2004. Prichard has also been very involved with the American Health Information Management Association.
