OSU leadership congratulates OSU Regent Calvin Anthony on Oklahoma Hall of Fame induction announcement

Following Thursday’s announcement of the induction of OSU Regent Calvin Anthony into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, the OSU Board of Regents and President Burns Hargis offered their congratulations. 

Statement from OSU Regents:

“The Oklahoma Hall of Fame is reserved for Oklahomans who have distinguished themselves in their service to our state. Our fellow OSU/A&M Regent Calvin Anthony is most worthy of induction into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame this fall. His life is one of service as a businessman, public servant, and community volunteer. What stands out about Calvin beyond his notable achievements is his unwavering character. He does what is right, no matter what. We congratulate Calvin as well as Olympian and OSU graduate John Smith who has steered our wrestling program for almost 20 years, winning several national championships and producing over 130 All-American student-athletes. Calvin and John represent the very best of our state and OSU.”

Statement from OSU President Burns Hargis: 

“The 2020 Oklahoma Hall of Fame class has a bright orange glow with the induction of Oklahoma State University alumni Calvin Anthony, Martha Burger, Terri Stewart-Forst and John Smith. OSU congratulates these Cowboy family members and the entire 2020 class on their outstanding careers and contributions to our state."

Anthony is a pharmacist/businessman in Stillwater and has farming operations in Woods and Payne counties. He was appointed by Gov. Brad Henry in 2006 and reappointed by Gov. Mary Fallin in 2013 to serve as a member of the A&M Board of Regents. He attended Oklahoma State University from 1963-1965 and received a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy from the University of Oklahoma College of Pharmacy in 1968. His term expires in 2022.

Oklahoma State University is a modern land-grant university that prepares students for success. OSU has more than 34,000 students across its five-campus system and more than 24,000 on its combined Stillwater and Tulsa campuses, with students from all 50 states and around 100 nations. Established in 1890, OSU has graduated more than 275,000 students to serve the state of Oklahoma, the nation and the world.
