Two SWOSU Education Students Attending National Leadership Conference
Two Southwestern Oklahoma State University students who are both state and SWOSU officers of the Student Oklahoma Education Association are attending a National Education Association Student Program leadership conference June 25-29 in Orlando, FL.
Kimberly (Stobbe) Sumner of Weatherford and Autumn Wright of Elk City earned the right to attend the conference after being elected as state officers of the SOEA. Sumner, a Corn Bible Academy graduate, is state secretary and Wright, an Oklahoma City (PC North) graduate, is legislative representative. At SWOSU, Sumner is president and Wright is vice president.
This year’s theme of the leadership conference is “Learn Today, Lead Tomorrow.”
It is believed this is the first time that two students from SWOSU have been elected in the same year to serve at the state level and also attend the national leadership conference. Sumner and Wright will attend various professional development sessions focused on leadership plus other activities.
