Tina Parkhill, owner of Parkhill’s South Liquors and Wine, and Scott Vaughn, president and chief executive officer of GlobalHealth, have been appointed by Governor Mary Fallin to the Oklahoma State University-Tulsa Board of Trustees.
“As OSU alumni, Tina and Scott have valuable insight for our continued efforts to provide quality higher education opportunities in Tulsa,” OSU-Tulsa President Howard Barnett said. “While both are successful in business, they are also strongly committed to community service and making life better for other Tulsans.”
Parkhill and Vaughn join OSU-Tulsa Trustees Charles Ford, board chairman Sean Kouplen, Brett Lessley, Tucker Link, Dr. Trudy Milner, John O’Connor and Pete Patel. Link and Milner are also members of the OSU/A&M Board of Regents.

She is president of the boards of directors for Leadership Tulsa and Family & Children’s Services and is vice president of the board for the bART Center for Music.
In addition, Parkhill is a national board member and member of the leadership council of the OSU Alumni Association. She was named Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser by the Association of Fundraising Professionals of Eastern Oklahoma in 2017.
