Leinneweber awarded UCO Price Lang Scholarship
Price Lang Consulting recently announced University of Central Oklahoma (UCO) senior Kayla Leinneweber as the third recipient of the Price Lang Scholarship for Communications Excellence through the UCO Foundation.
Leinneweber, of Del City, is a senior strategic communications major and leadership minor at UCO.
“It’s an absolute honor to be chosen as the UCO student who exemplifies the values of Price Lang,” Leinneweber said. “Price Lang is a great example of the impact that UCO Bronchos can have in their community, and also showcasing the importance of upholding the value of advocacy in our state. I am so grateful for Price Lang’s commitment to higher education and their generosity in helping me pursue my collegiate career.”
Leinneweber was selected for the scholarship by a panel of journalists, public relations professionals and UCO professors. The scholarship recognizes an outstanding junior or senior mass communication student and highlights the importance of communications and media in shaping public policy.
“Kayla is truly an exceptional student. She has been able to balance numerous leadership roles while consistently producing excellent work in the classroom. I have no doubt that she will continue to make a positive impact on her community long after she graduates from UCO,” said Mary Carver, chair of department of mass communication at UCO.
Price Lang’s founders, UCO graduates Charlie Price and Emily Lang, created the scholarship to honor the professors, mentors and friends who helped them in their academic and professional careers.
Leinneweber will be awarded $500 scholarship for the Spring 2018 through UCO Foundation.
“Fostering the next generation of journalists and communicators is a priority,” said Emily Lang, Price Lang founder. “We are honored to help Kayla continue her education at our own alma mater.”
