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. The applicants that were extended an invitation to participate and accepted will be involved in Leadership Development seminars over the next 18 months, as well as participate in a eastern US study tour that will include time in Washington, DC and will conclude their Class XVII agenda with an international study experience to a destination to be determined next spring.

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.

Class One of the Oklahoma Ag Leadership Program was funded from a grant from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation.

Beginning with Class II, private contributions from individuals and organizations, support from the Oklahoma Legislature, Oklahoma State University Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and participation fees from class participants have been the source of funding. In addition, there has been established a Professorship for the Ag Leadership Program that allows individuals and corporations to make legacy gifts to the program, where the interest from the gift will generate support for the Program on an ongoing basis.
