Leadership Stillwater

Class XXXI
August 2022 - January 2023


STILLWATER, Okla. (July 14, 2022) The Stillwater Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce and welcome the participants of Leadership Stillwater Class XXXI.

Leadership Stillwater is a program designed to identify, motivate and place emerging community leaders to assist in developing their potential. This is accomplished by stimulating an interest in Stillwater and by providing a common meeting ground of shared concerns among leaders from all sectors of the community.

The Leadership Stillwater program started in January 1984 with a class every 18 months. Now, a new group of participants begin every August and graduate the following January.

“This year marks 38 years of the Leadership Stillwater program with more than 650 graduates to date,” said Chamber President and CEO Justin Minges. “We are excited to hit this milestone, welcome Class XXXI and look forward to another 30 plus years.”

Each year, Leadership Stillwater participants choose and raise money and awareness for a local philanthropy or community project. They go on a police ride-along, complete an internship on a local non-profit board and learn about the Stillwater community from various perspectives.

Last year’s participants and members of the Leadership Stillwater Alumni Association will mentor the 2022 class. Class XXX graduates Heather Houle and Teigan Fuller will serve as this year’s co-chairs. Leadership Stillwater is presented by Central Rural Electric Cooperative.

Congratulations to those selected to participate in the program!
