DURANT, OK -- Hundreds came out to welcome South Eastern Oklahoma State University's newest president.

Senator Sean Burrage was named the 20th president of SOSU in May, but officially started the job last week. Monday night the Choctaw and Chickasaw Nation held a welcoming reception for the president, exceeding the original guest list. Senator Burrage says he's overwhelmed with the community's support and looks forward to a new future with SOSU.

"I started July 1st,” he said, “it’s my fourth official day on the job today. I've been meeting the folks across the university and across the community. Everybody's excited. I've found many talented people already at the university and I look forward to working with them."

Senator Burrage was born in Durant and raised in Antlers and says the reception was a warm homecoming for him.
