Emma Lathem receives McKnight Scholarship at Oklahoma State University

by Rhonda Butters


Dalhart High graduate Emma Lathem was recently awarded the prestigious McKnight Scholars Leadership Award for outstanding leadership and service. The McKnight Scholars Leadership Program is a prestigious leadership program at Oklahoma State University. Named after its benefactors, Ross and Billie McKnight, the McKnight Scholars Leadership Program is one of the premier undergraduate leadership cohorts in the nation. Only 30 to 35 students are selected annually for the program, which includes a scholarship valued at over $70,000, a fully-funded study abroad experience, and leadership courses. Students were selected based on a rigorous application process that evaluated demonstrated leadership ability, commitment to service, and academic strength.

Lathem was chosen because of her commitment to leadership, and the McKnight Program is dedicated to further developing that commitment to create life-giving leaders in our families, professions, and communities. Lathem’s outstanding leadership is truly worthy of community recognition, and Oklahoma State is proud to be welcoming her into the Cowboy family. For more information about the program, go to
