Amanda Callender, Alva senior, has been selected as Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Department of Social Sciences Civic Education Fellow for this academic year.

The criminal justice major will spend two weeks in May working directly with Sen. Bryce Marlatt at the Oklahoma State Capitol during the final weeks of the legislative session working as a Civic Education Fellow. She was selected based on her grade point average and her professional goals of pursuing a career in the public service field.

She also has been selected to attend the National Education for Women’s (NEW) Leadership Institute from May 17-21, at the Carl Albert Center at the University of Oklahoma.

Callender will join other female students from across the state who have been selected to participate in the Institute. Participants will engage in three days of discussions, lectures and presentations about the leadership role of women in today’s society.

The curriculum includes skill building workshops, a campaign simulation, a networking day at the Oklahoma State Capitol, a collaborative action project, panel discussions and more.
