Out of more than 207,000 alumni, only 165 have been inducted into the Oklahoma State University Hall of Fame. Bryan Close, Frederick F. Drummond, John D. Groendyke and the late Ramona Paul joined this select group on Feb. 13.
Close, a 1966 hotel and restaurant administration graduate, is the president of Tulsa’s CloseBend Inc., an internationally recognized leader in pipe bending. He has served on Oklahoma’s Alcoholic Beverage Laws Enforcement Commission for 18 years and has supported dozens of OSU students through his mentorship and scholarships he has established.
“There’s a word I use at times like this because no one has any doubt what it means. That word is ‘wow.’ This is a ‘wow’ moment,” Close said.
