Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City student Jose Ibarra recently received the George and Donna Nigh Public Service Scholarship.
Ibarra was selected for the opportunity by OSU-OKC President Brad Williams because of his on-campus achievements, both in and outside the classroom.
The scholarship program honors one student from participating two- and four-year universities, with each recipient receiving a $1,000 leadership scholarship. Scholarships are awarded at the conclusion of the five-day Leadership Academy, which includes personal development sessions on expanding skills and understanding the core values of leadership.
Ibarra is studying public service and will graduate in May from OSU-OKC. He plans to continue his education at the University of Central Oklahoma, where he will focus on political science.
