The Southeastern Oklahoma State University Honors Program serves a unique role in a small, rural setting such as Durant, Oklahoma. The honors program has a traditional mission in a university that offers a nontraditional setting and history within the context of higher education. The program thus offers special rewards to its students and to the university. The Southeastern Honors Program was built on the foundation created by the Parsons Scholars Program, which dates back to 1978 when it was endowed by a 1928 Southeastern graduate. Today, the honors program is committed to the ongoing growth and development of a culturally diverse and academically talented group of honors students. With a focus on educational excellence as well as cultural and technological literacy, the honors program challenges high-caliber students with special talents and outstanding academic abilities to develop local and global awareness and achieve their full potential. This brief article highlights the features of the Honors Program and shares two success stories.
