The Presidential Partners program is crucial to the success of Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College. Support from our Partners reaches every corner of campus and impacts the lives of students, staff, and faculty to ensure an outstanding NEO experience.
In an era of fluctuating state appropriations, private support is absolutely critical to the success of our students. Over 90% of NEO students receive some form of financial aid and many students from northeast Oklahoma are under-resourced. Programs such as the NEO Textbook Bank can be the difference in a student continuing with their classes or dropping out of higher education entirely. The need is real, and support from our Partners is crucial in helping students achieve their academic goals.
I hope you will join me in becoming a Presidential Partner. You can rest assured knowing that your support will truly make an impact in student lives and improve not just NEO but our community as well.
As a Partner myself, I want to assure you that my door is always open and I will meet with you as I am able. We owe it to our students, faculty, and staff to work together to make NEO the premier two-year educational institution in the nation.
