Tabor selects four high-schoolers as PLP scholars

PLP Scholars

Tabor College has selected four high school seniors to participate in the Presidential Leadership Program for 2019-20.

Candidates were evaluated on the campus Feb. 18-19. They participated in different activities, interviews and team assignments. PLP is a two-track program that includes Scholars and Fellows.

During the students’ visit, Tabor 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 Jules Glanzer, Tabor College president. “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 2019 class of Scholars are: Caleb Rempel, Hillsboro; Pierce Klaassen, Arkansas City; Shea Sutherland, Arkansas City; and Tara Sheets, Azle, Texas.
