NEO’s Campbell receives first ever Johnson Scholarship in Leadership and Public Service

Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College sophomore Madilynn Campbell was selected as a recipient of the first-ever 2024 Chancellor Glen D. Johnson Scholarship in Leadership and Public Service by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.

Campbell, from Big Cabin, Okla., is a pre-veterinary science major and a member of the NEO Horse Judging team. Campbell and her family breed their own horses, and she actively assists an equine veterinarian in the area.

“The Chancellor Glen D. Johnson Scholarship in Leadership and Public Service will help financially pave the way for my long journey of becoming a veterinarian,” said Campbell. “Time that would be spent worrying about the financial burden of college can now be spent prioritizing my time towards my education, being a leader in various clubs that I am involved in, and helping give back to the community. I am incredibly grateful to be chosen for such a competitive scholarship.”

The Chancellor Glen D. Johnson Scholarship in Leadership and Public Service honors Chancellor Johnson’s commitment to increasing the number of college graduates in Oklahoma to meet the state’s current and future workforce needs in today’s knowledge-based global economy.

To qualify for the scholarship, students are required to be an Oklahoma resident enrolled full-time at a public institution within the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education, be in good academic standing with a minimum GPA of 3.0 at the time of nomination, have completed at least 30 hours of college coursework or credits, and be classified as a sophomore, junior, or senior for the academic year in which the scholarship will be received.

Only two students attending Oklahoma’s public two-year colleges are recipients each year. Recipients are selected based on leadership experience, demonstrated interest in public service, community engagement and civic participation, a short essay on the importance and value of public service, and a letter of recommendation from an individual who can attest to the student’s leadership potential and commitment to public service.
