For Immediate Release: Feb. 17, 2020
Four Star Leadership with General Tommy Franks is accepting applications and nominations for its world-class leadership program that provides selected students the opportunity to earn scholarships, meet influential leaders and help prepare for their futures.
The program will be held July 12-17 in Oklahoma for 70 of the top-performing high school students from around the world. This opportunity is valued at more than $4,000 and is free of cost for selected students, including expenses, travel and programming.
Students will be housed on the campus of Oklahoma Christian University in Edmond, Oklahoma, where they will meet and engage with national and international leaders including elected officials, dignitaries and championship-level athletes. In addition, students will be confronted with practical leadership and ethical scenarios and then challenged to address them individually in a persuasive speech and writing competition as well as collaboratively in an ethics bowl competition.
“Four Star Leadership is a one-of-a-kind program focusing on the development of today’s students into tomorrow’s leaders,” said General Tommy Franks. “The program provides selected high school students invaluable leadership lessons through team-building exercises, spontaneous problem solving as well as coaching in persuasive speaking and writing.”
Program curriculum is designed around the four core principles of the four stars of leadership: character, common vision, communication and caring. Attendees will have a chance to earn more than $35,000 in scholarships, learn life-changing concepts and skills and receive endorsements and recommendations to future positions of leadership.
