Class XVII of the Oklahoma Ag Leadership Program Announced Class Seventeen of the Oklahoma Ag Leadership Program has been announced, as the 25 members of the Class will meet together for the first time in August on campus at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater.

There are three objectives that shape the program for each class of the OALP. They include:

1. To assist potential leaders develop a deeper understanding of themselves and of people. This includes personal and group study and interaction, improving skills in communications, and developing a commitment to future leadership roles in Oklahoma agriculture.

2. To help potential leaders develop a better understanding of the various systems of economics and government.

3. To help program participants increase and utilize their own knowledge and skills in order to solve problems and to explore opportunities for Oklahoma agriculture.
