Four Star Leadership Offers Opportunity for High School Students
For Immediate Release: March 26, 2016
Four Star Leadership with General Tommy Franks is accepting applications and nominations for its world-class summer leadership program to be held July 9-15. The General Tommy Franks Leadership Institute and Museum, in conjunction with Oklahoma Christian University, offers this one-of-a-kind opportunity to 70 of the top performing high school students from around the world, free of charge.
Students will be hosted by OC on the Edmond, Oklahoma, campus and travel on various excursions across the state where they will meet and engage with national and international leaders including politicians, dignitaries and star 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 tournament.
Attendees will have a chance to earn more than $15,000 in scholarships as well as gain internships and receive letters of recommendation.
Program curriculum is designed around the four core principles that lead retired Gen. Tommy Franks through his 38-year military career: character, common vision, communication and caring.
“Four Star Leadership is dedicated to developing leaders who can solve problems and communicate solutions in hopes of providing the next generation with the tools they need to succeed,” said Franks. “This program provides high school students invaluable leadership experience through team-building exercises, spontaneous problem solving and coaching in persuasive speaking and writing.”
Applications and nominations for Four Star Leadership 2016 are being accepted now through May 2. For more information on the program, to nominate a student or to apply, visit FourStarLeader.com.
