Christman to lead PSU College of Education

Steve Scott, dean of the Pittsburg State University College of Education, announced this week that James C. "Chris" Christman, has been selected interim dean of the college. Christman will assume the position when Scott becomes vice president of Academic Affairs at the end of the academic year. Christmas has served as chairman of the Department of Special Services and Leadership Studies in the College of Education since 2002.

Christman, Scott said, "is committed to continuing the good work we have underway and to making the College and teacher education even stronger."

Christman received a bachelor of science degree in social science from Missouri Southern State College and both a master's degree and education specialist degree in secondary school administration from Pittsburg State. He received a doctorate in educational administration from Oklahoma State University.

Christman began his professional career as a social science teacher at Galena High School and served in the same role at Webb City High School.
