Scott Milette is a 1989 graduate of Noble High School. His wife Kandy, is also a graduate of NHS and they have been married for over 28 years. They have two boys, Mason and Madden, who are also NHS graduates. Scott has worked for the University of Oklahoma for the last 25 years operating a printing press. Scott is currently serving on the School Board District in Seat 1. He previously served from 2012 -2014 in Seat 4.
For the last 28 years, Scott has volunteered his time coaching little league including basketball, baseball and football. He not only does it for the love of the game but for his passion in working with kids. He believes in a well-rounded education for students which includes an education within the classroom and through extracurricular activities, such as sports, arts, and clubs. Mr. Milette believes that schools are tasked with doing more, but with less funding. He believes that state teachers are constantly being overburdened with more and more testing requirements, while less state funding has created larger class sizes making it increasingly more difficult for great teachers and schools to meet all of the requirements. He is aware that administrators have a very difficult job in making sure what little allocations they get is stretched to meet the needs of so many within the district. From his board seat and volunteering, Scott is trying to do his part to assist Noble Schools and the community in any way possible.
Scott is very passionate about sports. Many of his greatest life lessons were taught to him by Noble coaches. Scott believes many intangible life lessons are learned through sports, such as teamwork, dedication, leadership, discipline, respect, perseverance, mental strength, physical strength and fitness, sharing, putting others first, balancing time, etc. He believes sports and activities help with the social constructs that allow students to succeed in life by learning to interact with others in a meaningful way and that public schools provide the opportunity to be something bigger than yourself. It is not just sports, but about all education and life lessons. Whether that is in the classroom or on the field. Whether that is participating in FFA, DECA, Band, Fine Arts, or all other activities, they all help educate and prepare students to be college and career ready. Scott is passionate about Noble Public Schools and the community, and is extremely proud to serve on our Board of Education.

Leroy Lukinbill graduated from Noble High School in 1982 and later obtained an Associates Degree in Municipal Fire Protection from OSU Oklahoma City. He retired from the Norman Fire Department in 2015 with 30 years of service. His wife Billie, is a registered nurse and a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army Reserves with over 30 years of service and currently active duty. Their son Cody graduated from Noble as a thirteen year senior and since has also pursued a career in the United States Army. Leroy now says one of his main jobs is to support Billie and Cody in their careers! Leroy has lived in the southern part of the district for over 35 years where enjoys spending time with his family, watching all kinds of sports, and doing anything outdoors.
Leroy was elected to the Noble School Board in February 2015 and is now in his second five year term. He believes that education should empower kids, build character and confidence, and open doors that will lead to success. He wants to remain focused on the goals that he run on in 2015 and said one of the main things he learned in his first term is that “our focus has to be a school system that provides what our students need to be successful, not what we want or what we have done in the past and think it is still relevant. We have to continue to adapt and evolve to meet those needs.”
As an alumnus, and a longtime resident of the district, he is proud of the progress and achievements that have been made, and as a board member, he looks forward to challenges to continue the development of a quality school system that the kids of Noble deserve.
