Lawrence McClure is an electrical engineering technology major from Desoto, Texas. He is the son of Larry and Laura McClure.
McClure's activities include National Society of Black Engineers, African American Student Association and serving as a Student Affairs Cultural Ambassador. He has volunteered his time with the Overflow Prayer Team and the Humane Society of Stillwater. McClure has been named an INROADS Intern of the Year and is also on the President's and Dean's Honor Roll and a National Society of Collegiate Scholars.
"I couldn't have done any of this without the grace of Jesus Christ, the support of my family, and the extensive help and generosity of the staff here at OSU," McClure says. "Never have I felt so at home and loved by a school as I have here. OSU will forever have a warm place in my heart. It has given so much to me, and I shall spend a lifetime giving it back."
After graduation, McClure plans to work and go to seminary to prepare for ministry. He hopes to start a motivational speaking program to encourage middle school and high school students to achieve their goals despite opposition.
The Outstanding Senior award recognizes students who distinguish themselves through academic achievement; campus and community activities; academic, athletic or extra-curricular honors or awards; scholarships and work ethic during their time at Oklahoma State University.
The OSU Alumni Association Student Awards and Selection Committee selected the 15 winners after meeting with the 40 Seniors of Significance selected in the fall of 2011 and reviewing their applications.
A public banquet honoring the Outstanding Seniors was held on April 23 at the ConocoPhillips OSU Alumni Center in Stillwater. For more information about the OSU Alumni Association's Student Awards program, visit http://orangeconnection.org/studentaw....
