Students selected for Tabor’s Presidential Leadership Program

Tabor College has selected four high school seniors to participate in the Presidential Leadership Program beginning Fall 2020.

Candidates were evaluated on the campus Feb. 16-17. They participated in various activities, interviews and team assignments. PLP is a two-track program that includes Scholars and Fellows.

During the students’ visit, Tabor College President Jules Glanzer and Erin Barocio, director of the PLP fellow program, interviewed each individual.

“Hosting the presidential leadership program candidates is an honor and pure joy,” said President Glanzer. “These men and women are high-capacity individuals who are inspiring to meet and enjoyable to get to know. Interviewing the candidates is always an enriching experience. Selecting the Scholars is very difficult because all of the candidates are worthy of the honor.”

The mission of the PLP is to prepare people to be persons of influence, learning how to lead well and influence the world to be more what God intended it to be.

Scholars are awarded up to $22,000 in scholarship, while Fellows are awarded $6,000. The 2020 class of Scholars are: Danielle Allison, Oakley, Kan.; Megan Brock, Poolville, Texas; Justin Burman, Cimarron, Kan.; and Sebastian Mireles, McAllen, Texas.
