In 1948, Buddy Reger, Clem McSpadden, Larry Kilgore, Leo Roberts, Harold Emery, Turner Meadors, and Chuck Dancer skipped classes at Oklahoma State University (OSU) to participate in the first Cameron Aggie’s Club Intercollegiate Rodeo in Lawton, Oklahoma. Kilgore was crowned the Outstanding Cowboy of the rodeo. Fifty years later the president of OSU pardoned the seven rodeo enthusiasts absences in class that day because they represented the university in an exemplary way.
