A fifth-generation Oklahoman, Chris Kidd serves as State Senator for the 31st District in Oklahoma. His service was inspired by his great grandfather, who himself held elected office in both the Oklahoma State House and State Senate.
Kidd graduated from Waurika High School, and received an Associate Degree in Agricultural Science from Murray State College. He then went on to graduate from Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.
Prior to his election to the State Senate in 2016, Kidd worked for the Chickasaw Nation, serving on the economic development team; at BancFirst as a branch manager and was the Agricultural Education Instructor and FFA Advisor at Waurika High School. For the past 8 years, Kidd held several posts at the Oklahoma Farm Bureau, where he served as a Field Representative, Director of State and National Affairs and in 2014, was named Vice President of Membership.
Staying true to his roots, Kidd continues to work the land that was allotted to his family in southern Oklahoma. As his great grandfather inspired his legacy of service, today Kidd seeks to pass that same inspiration to his own children. "Family history can disappear with time, unless someone passes that history on," says Kidd.
