Eastern Oklahoma State College

Alumni Association Hall of Fame

Co-sponsored by Eastern Oklahoma State College and the Eastern Oklahoma State College Alumni Association, the Alumni Hall of Fame was created to honor former Eastern students who have distinguished themselves by making considerable contributions in their field. The first three honorees were approved for induction by charter members of the Alumni Hall of Fame in 1988. 

Those considered for induction attended Eastern Oklahoma State College and achieved professional excellence. They are also distinguished community leaders who possess high character. Eastern has many fine graduates and the individuals honored serve as an inspiration to us all.
