Brett Rowh, Oklahoma State University’s coordinator of concurrent student academic services, was honored by the Stillwater school system with a Community Partner of the Month award for December.
Rowh works with Stillwater High School students who want to jump-start their college educations by taking OSU classes for credit. In the past, concurrent classes taught by OSU instructors were only offered on campus, but in spring 2017 Rowh launched a program allowing Stillwater students to take OSU classes at the high school. Rowh also worked to make the classes available free of tuition and fees beginning in January.
Rowh received the Community Partner Award at the Dec. 11 Stillwater School Board meeting from Superintendent Marc Moore and Principal Uwe Gordon. Rowh is starting similar programs at Perry and Yale high schools.
