Giles Represents SWOSU at Nigh Leadership Academy
April 26, 2010
Southwestern Oklahoma State University senior nursing student Hollie Giles of Mustang recently attended the George and Donna Nigh Public Service Scholarship Academy in Oklahoma City.
Giles was the SWOSU representative to the academy and received a $1,000 scholarship to attend the five-day event. Students met with many state leaders, prominent business leaders and academic scholars and visited several places around the State Capitol area.
The academy was established by the state legislature in 2000 to honor the Nighs for their contributions to public service. Universities in Oklahoma are allowed to send one representative from each campus to the academy.
