Cameron University has named 25 freshmen and 3 juniors to join the Presidential Leaders & University Scholars (PLUS) program for the 2022-2023 academic year. The PLUS program is designed to reward students who have demonstrated academic excellence and outstanding leadership capabilities and to teach these students skills that will prepare them for dynamic leadership roles in their respective careers.
Longtime Cameron University employee Sarah Stroud has been named director of the university’s Open Doors and Upward Bound programs, following the retirement of Beth Gregory. Stroud, who joined the CU staff in 2001, was most recently assistant director of the Upward Bound program.
Cameron University has partnered with the Lawton Public School Foundation to provide scholarships for LPS employees who want to pursue higher education.
Cameron University has added another resource to support its students, thanks to the generosity of Delta Dental of Oklahoma (DDOK). The company and its foundation provided funding for the Delta Dental of Oklahoma Pre-Dentistry Endowed Scholarship, which will benefit full-time students who are pursuing a bachelor of science degree in either biology or chemistry and who have declared their intent to pursue a post-baccalaureate degree in dentistry.
