Rogers LEAD WT Names 2018 Cohort


CANYON, Texas—Twenty-seven students in majors ranging from music therapy to plant and soil science have been named to the Rogers LEAD WT cohort for 2018 at West Texas A&M University.

Rogers LEAD WT is a leadership certificate program at WTAMU to help students discover their leadership potential through education, application and service. Students from all disciplines are encouraged to apply, and the program is designed toward a student’s major and plans for the future.

LEAD WT students spend approximately 10-15 hours per month meeting program requirements that include four credit hours in leadership courses as well as eight credit hours of approved courses within the student’s major. Students also complete a team project to benefit the campus community. Real world application requirements include an approved internship as well as participation in events that include an etiquette dinner, networking events and public speaking opportunities. Students completing the program receive a leadership certificate, and it will be noted on their transcripts that they have completed a Certification in Leadership from WTAMU.
