Since its formation in 1994 the Plemmons Leadership Scholars Program has been committed to providing students with out-of-class experiences that complement their in-class learning and investing in their potential to become the next generation of leaders. Each Plemmons Scholar was chosen based on their aptitude for leadership and successful involvement in their high school and community. We have witnessed those bright minds, utilize resources provided by the Plemmons Leadership Scholars Program to grow as leaders and achieve great things on campus and all over the world.
