LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (INTELLIHUB) — The former Governor of Arkansas and President of the United States Bill Clinton and former U.S. President George W. Bush will be speaking with a group of 59 Presidential Leadership Scholars next Thursday during this year’s Presidential Leadership Program graduation ceremony about issues such as immigration reform, the opioid crisis, and veteran affairs.
PLS serves as a catalyst for a diverse network of leaders brought together to collaborate and make a difference in the world as they learn about leadership through the lens of the presidential experiences of George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Lyndon B. Johnson.
Each year, a diverse group of mid-career professionals begins a journey to hone their leadership abilities through interactions with former presidents, key administration officials, leading academics, and business and civic leaders.
Scholars put their learning into action through personal leadership projects, intended to solve a problem or pressing issue in their community, country, or the world. They gain the skills necessary to work across divides and develop a network that spans traditional geographic, professional, political, and economic boundaries.
The program starts at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 11, 2018, at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock.
The event will not be open to the public but will be streamed live on the official website.
