Nineteen students were recently inducted into Southeastern Oklahoma State University’s inaugural class of McNair Scholars.
The University was awarded the Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program grant through U.S. Department of Education in December. Known as the McNair Scholars Program, this is a TRIO program that supports the development of research skills and expected graduate school enrollment of a group of select students.
The Ronald E. McNair Post Baccalaureate Achievement Program was created in his honor by the U.S. Department of Education in 1989. Dr. McNair was one of seven crew members killed in the space shuttle Challenger explosion on January 28, 1986.
