Three upcoming luncheon series gatherings are planned in Yukon by Southwestern Oklahoma State University.

The “Let’s Do Lunch” Yukon series is open to all members of the community.

Luncheons will be March 26, Developing YOUR Brand; March 29, Leadership in Real-Life: 5 Practices for Success; April 8, Developing the Next Generation of Leadership.

Two SWOSU faculty members, Holly McKee, chair of SWOSU’s Everett Dobson School of Business, and Sarah King, instructor of accounting—recently facilitated the first of the spring series of luncheons.

The pair shared practical tools and strategies for maximizing personality differences in the workplace.

The luncheon series is part of a partnership between SWOSU and Yukon Public Schools, which launched in Fall 2020.


“SWOSU’s presence in Yukon offers students and community members incredible access to knowledge and resources,” said Yukon resident Jonna Myers, SWOSU Graduate Director and.

“This luncheon series is designed to enhance Yukon’s business community with the expertise of SWOSU’s business faculty.”

“Let’s Do Lunch Yukon is yet another example of the SWOSU@Yukon partnership coming together to provide access to current and relative topics centered on leadership and maximizing the workplace environment for our community members in Yukon,” said Lance Haggard, YPS Executive Director of Elementary Education.

Each luncheon is bring-your-own-lunch and runs from 12:15 p.m. to 1 p.m. at the YPS Administration Building.
