Over the course of several months, Scholars will travel to each of the the George W. Bush, William J. Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Lyndon B. Johnson presidential centers to learn from former presidents, key former administration officials, business and civic leaders, and leading academics and exchange ideas to help strengthen their impact in their communities.

The announcement of the fifth annual PLS class is posted here. Dr. Patton is seen above sharing ideas with members of his cohort at their kick-off meeting in Washington, DC, on February 5. Congratulations, Dr. Patton!
