Jordan Cowger from Kansas City, Missouri, recently was named Oklahoma State University’s College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Charles and Magda Browning Outstanding Freshman for 2018.

STILLWATER, Okla. – Jordan Cowger from Kansas City, Missouri, recently was named Oklahoma State University’s College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Charles and Magda Browning Outstanding Freshman for 2018.

Cowger is a biochemistry and molecular biology and animal science double major and a 2016 graduate of Liberty High School. She is the daughter of Scott and Lorraine Cowger.

The Brownings established the Outstanding Freshman award to recognize both the academic excellence and outstanding leadership activity during a student’s freshman year at OSU. It is awarded at the end of a student’s sophomore year for their efforts as a freshman in CASNR.

Cowger’s campus involvement includes serving as a CASNR Ambassador, OSU Honors College Ambassador, OSU Student Foundation secretary and the National Women’s Fraternity academic chair assistant. During her freshman year, Cowger was a freshman research scholar and a Freshman and Transfer Council representative.

“As an out-of-state student coming into CASNR and OSU, it is safe to say that I found my home, and I found my family,” Cowger said. “My passion for agriculture drew me to OSU but it has been further cultivated through my involvement and interaction with those in CASNR.”

Jordan was a National Women’s Fraternity Outstanding New Member, Outstanding Freshman Dinner attendee, and National Society of Collegiate Scholars nominee. She has been recognized on the Dean’s and President’s Honor Rolls and is currently an OSU Honors College student.

“Jordan came to OSU and, as an out-of-state student, made the decision to get involved and find ways she could to contribute to her college and her campus,” said Cynda Clary, CASNR associate dean of academic programs. “She has an incredible ability to connect and engage with those around her and I look forward to seeing what she does during her career here.”

Cowger maintains a 4.0 GPA alongside serving her community in various capacities such as volunteering for the Ronald McDonald House, Into the Streets, the Make-a-Wish Foundation, and CowboyThon for Children’s Miracle Network.
