Tabor College today announced the recipients of the 2013 Tabor College Presidential Leadership Scholarships. Justin Goble, Salina, Kan, Tena Loewen, Hillsboro, Kan., Macy Root, Minneapolis, Kan. and Logan Whitney, Concordia, Kan. are the four recipients of the prestigious $68,000 scholarships. These students will participate in a four-year leadership laboratory that is designed to develop young people into effective and skilled leaders for the next generation.

In announcing the selections, Tabor College President Jules Glanzer noted that these are students of exceptional caliber. “We are excited that these outstanding student leaders will be spending the next four years on our Tabor campus,” he said. “These are young people with integrity, heart and a passion to serve. It will be a pleasure to welcome them to our community, interact with them and watch them grow and develop into outstanding leaders.”

Rusty Allen, Vice-President for Enrollment Management and Intercollegiate Athletics commented on the selection weekend held Nov. 4-5, 2012. “We enjoyed having the finalists on our campus and that they had the opportunity to interact with our current students, faculty and staff,” he said. “We were excited to host these exceptional students and believe that they have tremendous potential to shape and influence the Tabor College campus.”

During the immersive four-year program, Presidential Leadership Scholars will experience mentoring by Tabor College President Jules Glanzer, have the opportunity to travel with him to professional seminars, network with business, industry and political leaders as well as serve the Tabor College student population while pursuing academic achievements in the classroom.

The Tabor College Presidential Leadership Scholarship program was initiated in 2011. The selection process included an extensive application. From that group, the finalists were invited to the Hillsboro campus to participate in a competitive process which evaluated their skills in the areas of public speaking, writing, group problem solving and interactions with other students.
