The Presidents Leadership Class (PLC) is a four-year leadership program for top students at Southwestern Oklahoma State University at Weatherford. The program was founded in 2006 and is primarily supported by private donations.

Each year approximately 15 of SWOSU’s top entering freshmen are selected to be PLC Scholars. Each Scholar is awarded a $1,000 scholarship and also receives four years of leadership training that fosters both intellectual and personal growth. PLC develops leaders who will have a profound understanding of leadership and its responsible application within organizations, communities and their state.

PLC’s curriculum allows Scholars to develop leadership skills through weekly lectures given by staff, business and community leaders, discussion groups, group projects, community service, and internships. To learn more about the Presidents Leadership Class, please review this website or contact the PLC office.
