Mon, 09 Jul 2018 12:08:03 CDT

Class XIX of the Oklahoma Ag Leadership Program Announced by Oklahoma State University OKlahoma State University and the Oklahoma Ag Leadership Program have announced the successful applicants that will become Class XIX of the OALP. Dr. Edmond Bonjour, Director of the Program, says that the class which will gather for the first time in August in Stillwater, will consist of twenty five young men and women who are interested in developing their knowledge of agriculture and their leadership skills over the next two years. (Pictured here is the most recent graduating class- Class XVIII)

Dr. Bonjour says the class will feature 18 men and 7 women, coming from all across the state of Oklahoma.

“OALP is one of Oklahoma’s top leadership programs geared toward emerging leaders in the agriculture industry,” Bonjour said. “OALP has been helping Oklahomans develop their leadership skills for nearly four decades, and we continue to produce well-educated leaders for our state’s agriculture industry.”

OALP has three main objectives. First, the program is designed to help potential leaders develop a deeper and fuller appreciation of people. While new members begin the program with some leadership skills, they complete the class with an even broader understanding and appreciation of people throughout the United States and the world.

“Our second objective is designed to help potential leaders develop a better understanding of basic systems of economics and government. Many of the opportunities and problems facing agriculture today are economic in nature,” he said. “In addition, many of the solutions to economic problems and economic opportunities exist beyond the borders of Oklahoma and beyond the boundaries of the United States.”

The third objective is to help OALP participants utilize their understanding of people and their knowledge of systems of economics and government to solve problems and exploit opportunities for the state’s agricultural industry.

The 20-month program consists of 10 three-day seminars and study tours within Oklahoma, one three-day seminar in northern Oklahoma and Kansas, a week-long seminar in Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C., and a two-week international experience near the end of the program. The first seminar for OALP Class XIX will take place in August 2018.
