“This is Herland: Gendered Activism in Oklahoma from the 1870s to the 2010s,” co-edited by Dr. Sarah Eppler Janda, professor of history at Cameron University, and Dr. Patricia Loughlin, is one of two selections chosen to represent Oklahoma at the National Book Festival in September. The Oklahoma Center for the Book selected Janda’s book as well as “Run Little Chaski! An Inka Trail Adventure” by Mariana Llanos to represent Oklahoma as part of the National Center for the Book’s “Great Reads from Great Places” program.
Cameron University has announced the President’s and Dean’s honor rolls for the Summer 2022 semester. To make the President’s Honor Roll, undergraduate students must be enrolled full-time (carrying at least six hours of classes for the summer semester) and maintain a straight-A (4.0) average. The Dean’s Honor Roll requires a B (3.00-3.99) average.
The Cameron University Alumni Association is seeking donations for the university’s Campus Closet, a repository of household goods and apparel that is available to all Cameron students.
The Cameron University Foundation has received $650,568 through the sale of stock that it received as a gift more than 40 years ago from community leaders Floyd Freeman and Ewell Lacy. As partners in a group of Lawton businessmen who chartered Wichita National Life (WNL) in 1957, Freeman and Lacy played a significant role in establishing a locally owned and operated insurance company that has served the citizens of southwest Oklahoma ever since.
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.
