Oklahoma State University has named 126 incoming freshmen to its President's Leadership Council for the 2015-2016 academic year. Of these students, 24 are enrolled in the OSU College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. President’s Leadership Council is a freshmen scholarship and academic leadership program that emphasizes the importance of leadership and service throughout life.

Students in PLC complete a year-long class consisting of attending leadership and ethics seminars; performing 40 hours of volunteer community service; planning and implementing a leadership conference for high school seniors; and completing a small group creative component leadership project.

In its 49th year, PLC has taught more than 5,400 OSU students. Many of these students have graduated from OSU and have utilized their PLC skills in their businesses and communities, making a direct impact on both their personal and professional lives.

"To meet the challenges of the 21st century, Oklahoma needs to develop creative, ethical, inclusive and effective leaders," said Stephen Haseley, Center for Ethical Leadership coordinator. "The council will meet this challenge through an academic course of instruction, scholarship, service-learning field experiences, leadership conference development and implementation for high school seniors, and international study. Like previous participants in this program, this year’s members will enhance their understanding of ethics and leadership and make positive contributions to OSU, the state of Oklahoma, the nation, and the world.”
