Celebrate Black History Month

Dr. Ebony Johnson

Tulsa Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Ebony Johnson.

Today, Morton shines a spotlight on Dr. Ebony Johnson, a distinguished Tulsa native who holds the honor of being the first permanent African American female Superintendent of Tulsa Public Schools. Dr. Johnson’s journey is deeply rooted in her educational experience within Tulsa Public Schools, having attended Walt Whitman Elementary, Gilcrease Middle School, and McLain High School.

With a steadfast commitment to excellence, Dr. Johnson has outlined three core goals: responsiveness, results orientation, and resilience. These principles guide her leadership as she navigates the complexities of education and community engagement.

Morton proudly celebrates Dr. Ebony Johnson for the profound impact she has made on the lives of Tulsans and the communities she serves. Her dedication to educational equity and her trailblazing leadership serves as an inspiration to all, especially during Black History Month, as we honor her contributions to shaping the future of education and uplifting her community.
