Sen. Dan Newberry is one of 48 state officials from across the country to be selected by the Council of State Governments (CSG) as a Henry Toll Fellow for the class of 2014.
The Toll Fellowship Program is one of the nation’s foremost leadership development programs for state officials. According to CSG, a nine-member panel of leaders reviewed a record number of applications to select this year’s class of Toll Fellows.
“The Toll Fellowship has cultivated a number of top legislative leaders, and will provide officials with the tools to encourage job growth and advance individual liberty,” said Newberry, R-Tulsa. “I look forward to joining officials from across the country to examine how we can be more effective leaders and public servants.”
Each year, the Toll Fellowship brings together 48 of the nation’s top rising officials from all three branches of state government for a six-day program of extensive education and training. Four current governors, four lieutenant governors and six members of Congress are Toll Fellows alumni.
“This program has a long-established record of providing its participants with the skills they need to more productively address the issues faced by their respective states,” said Newberry. “I am humbled and grateful to have been chosen for this unique opportunity.”
