Jacob, Sarah & Elijah
Three bright, motivated students who dream of going to college in Oklahoma. These are just three, of several hundred students that would love to have the choice for college. LeadLearnLive has just entered into an agreement with Northeastern State University to begin the RiverHawks Scholar Program, which will be the first comprehensive, inclusive college program for students with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD)!
But one program is not enough!
By design, these programs only admit a small number of students in order to individualize the supports that each student needs to be successful. The demand for these programs far outpaces the capacity of a single program. LeadLearnLive has been able to fund the first program in Oklahoma. And YOU can help by making college a choice for more of the students that want to attend!
The RiverHawks Scholar Program
AT Northeastern State University
The first program of it’s kind in Oklahoma!
LeadLearnLive is excited to announce the we have entered into an agreement with Northeastern State University to begin the FIRST program for students with intellectual or developmental disabilities in Oklahoma!
NSU is an amazing university to work with and has a core team of leadership committed to making this first program a flagship program for our state! LeadLearnLive supported laying a firm foundation for a program of excellence by bringing in national presenters from College of Charleston and Think College - the national coordinating center for these programs - to lead an intensive 2 day training for core leadership.
Join us in celebrating 6 years of educating, building support and forming relationships to make this program a reality for Oklahoma students! We hope it is the first of many in our state!
We are still raising funding to complete the goal for this first program and continue to work toward more quality programs in Oklahoma. The need is far greater than 1 program will accommodate.
