Gary Clark of Stillwater, Oklahoma, graduated with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in agricultural education from OSU in 1969 and 1972, respectively. He then went on to receive a Juris Doctor from the University of Texas in 1975 with honors.


Clark was a member of the OSU/Oklahoma A&M Board of Regents from 1993 to 2001, serving as chair from 1997 to 1998. He also served as vice president and general counsel for the OSU Foundation from 2004 to 2008. From 2008 until his retirement in 2021, he worked at OSU as senior vice president and general counsel.


Former OSU President Burns Hargis said no one is more “loyal and true” than Clark. Through his leadership and support of OSU, Hargis describes Clark as the wise counsel behind the scenes.


Clark continues to stay connected to his alma mater. Recently, Clark, a member of Alpha Gamma Rho, joined others in the brotherhood to name a space in honor of the fraternity in the New Frontiers building. The collective effort generated $267,000 toward the New Frontiers campaign goal to build a new facility for OSU Agriculture.
