OKLAHOMA CITY – House Speaker Kris Steele today named David K. Hill, chief executive officer of Kimray, as his appointee on the Judicial Nominating Commission.
“In November, the citizens of Oklahoma voted to change the membership of the Judicial Nominating Commission to include individuals with broad-based knowledge and experience,” said Steele, R-Shawnee. “David Hill is a proven leader in business, education and government. He clearly has the qualities needed to thoroughly vet nominees for judicial vacancies. I am confident he will serve the state of Oklahoma well and I appreciate his willingness to take on this important duty.”
The Judicial Nominating Commission reviews candidates for judicial vacancies and submits a list of nominees to the governor, who makes the final selection.
Hill is an OSU alumnus and has a degree in International Business from the Advanced Training Institute in Chicago, Ill. He has been with Kimray since 1993.
Hill previously served for six years on the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission, starting in 1998.
In 2004, Hill and his wife Shannon founded Providence Hall, a private school providing classical Christian education to the north Oklahoma City metropolitan area. In addition, Hill is a founding board member of the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon. He and his wife have been married 17 years and have six children.
