Welcome Our Newest Plemmons Scholars

Plemmons Leadership Scholars is a cohort based, four-year scholarship program directed through Leadership Education and Development (LEAD). Through opportunities in and out of the classroom, Plemmons Leadership Scholars are empowered to develop personally and professionally, embrace continuous reflection and learning, critically examine leadership systems and structures, take action on issues and causes that matter to them, serve as advocates alongside peers and community members, and contribute to lasting change in groups and organizations they are a part of.

Each summer, up to ten scholars are accepted from the incoming first-year class. Scholars join an active community of 40 students and an alumni network of over 250 individuals. We are excited to congratulate the following students for their selection into the 2020 Cohort of Plemmons Leadership Scholars.
