Cameron University recently welcomed the 36th class of new Presidential Leaders & University Scholars (PLUS) for the upcoming academic year.
There are 24 freshmen enrolled in the scholars program. The goal of the program is to reward students who show outstanding leadership skills and academic excellence during high school. In the program, the students will receive special education that will help them grow into dynamic leaders for their future careers.
“Acceptance into the PLUS program is a distinct honor,” Sylvia Burgess, associate vice president of academic affairs, said. “Over the next four years, these students will participate in numerous activities aimed at preparing them for leadership positions throughout their lifetime."
The recipients of this year’s PLUS program are from throughout Oklahoma. They unite a unique experience of community service and leadership opportunities in a single group.
The students will receive scholarships that surpass $20,000. They have also been chosen for the four-year leadership development program to mold them into outstanding professionals and citizens. They will learn leadership theory, group dynamics, communication skills and problem-solving to help them throughout their futures.
The students are chosen because of their community involvement, leadership experience, ACT/SAT scores, grade point average, formal interview results and essay about leadership.
