The Leadership Durant class begins in August with Orientation at which point each student will receive their Leadership Durant portfolio and the class agenda for each month. An evening reception is held following Orientation day. The class meets for one day each month with the exception of December and is complete in June with Graduation. The class will participate in activities ranging from team building exercises to visiting and meeting area media, city, council and state officials. They also tour area schools, hospitals, major employers and other areas of interest such as museums and the Oklahoma City State Capitol. Additional activities and events are scheduled throughout the year to help raise money to donate to a deserving non-profit organization of that class’ choice. Leadership Durant also volunteers for various events and organizations throughout the year.
Participants and their employers must commit to this program for it to be effective for each student. Former class members include vice presidents of banks, business owners, teachers, managers, professors, attorneys, administrative personnel and more.
