OSU Mortar Board chooses top freshmen men and women

Monday, October 16, 2017

Recognized as one of Oklahoma State University’s prestigious honors, the Mortar Board Honor Society has selected this year’s top 20 freshmen men and top 20 freshmen women.

The 40 students are selected during their sophomore year based on criteria including scholarship, community service, campus involvement and outstanding leadership throughout their first year at OSU. All honorees recently attended a dinner at the Willham House with OSU President Burns Hargis.

More than 150 students applied for the designation this time. Of the 40 students selected, 20 went on to be interviewed and chosen for OSU’s top 10 freshmen men and top 10 freshmen women.

Courtney Mapes, Mortar Board Honor Society’s coordinator for this year’s contest, worked with other members of the local Achafoa chapter during the selection process.

“We try to choose students who have divided their time well at OSU, while still thriving academically,” said Mapes, a senior animal science major and former top 10 freshman at OSU.

Adrienne Blakey was chosen as one of the top 10 women. Congratulations Adrienne!
