Regent Toney StricklinSouthwestern Oklahoma State University is hosting its 10th annual President’s Leadership Class (PLC) banquet on Monday, March 28. The banquet will begin at 6 p.m. in the Memorial Student Center Ballroom in Weatherford.

PLC is a four-year leadership program for many top students at SWOSU. 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 and receive four years of leadership training that fosters both intellectual and personal growth.

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.

Tickets are available for the general public for $25. To purchase tickets or for more information about the event, contact Todd Boyd at (580)774-3782 or
