STILLWATER — Taryn Blackstock, an applied exercise science major from Prosper, Texas, has been selected as an Oklahoma State University Senior of Significance for the 2019-2020 academic year by the OSU Alumni Association.

Blackstock was a member of the 2019 Cambridge Scholars Program and president of the Pre-Physical Therapy Club. She was the first Wentz Grant recipient in the College of Education, Health and Aviation; and a scholar development and undergraduate research ambassador.

The Seniors of Significance Award recognizes students who have excelled in scholarship, leadership and service to campus and community and have brought distinction to OSU.

A public reception to recognize Blackstock and the other 40 Seniors of Significance Award winners was held last month at the ConocoPhillips OSU Alumni Center in Stillwater.
