NEO Student Body Government officers traveled to Oklahoma City on February 8 for 2024 Higher Education Day at the Capitol.

The purpose of the annual event is to demonstrate the value and importance of the State System of Higher Education to Oklahoma’s current and future workforce development and economic growth and to recognize recipients of the Distinguished Service Award for Higher Education for their steadfast leadership and support during the 2023 legislative session.

Colleges and university students from all over the state met in the Chamber of the House of Representatives. Governor Kevin Stitt, Speaker Charles McCall, Sen. Adam Pugh, Rep. Mark McBride, State Regents Chair Jack Sherry, Oklahoma State System of Higher Education Chancellor Allison D. Garrett, and representatives of Oklahoma’s higher education institutions were in attendance.
