SWOSU's Wolgamott Honored by OU College of Allied Health
Dr. Gary Wolgamott, associate dean of the School of Allied Health at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, was recently honored by the University of Oklahoma College of Allied Health.
Wolgamott was presented a Citation for Special Contribution to the OU College of Allied Health in a surprise ceremony on the SWOSU campus.
The award was created in 1983 by Dr. Philip Smith, the first dean of the OU College of Allied Health. The award is given to deserving faculty, alumni, adjunct faculty, members of the community and others who have made unique or meritorious contributions that have benefited the College of Allied Health.
Wolgamott was presented the award in recognition of his role as an ambassador for the allied health professions. He has helped in the recruitment of SWOSU students and graduates who have continued their educational careers at the OU Health Sciences Center College of Allied Health.
At SWOSU, Wolgamott designed a course that introduces students to the health professions. Many of the professions are not generally known to the prospective student, so the course has become influential for many students as their first exposure to the allied health profession.
Wolgamott is an avid supporter of students intent on pursuing careers in the health sciences. Because of his leadership and work in advisement, many SWOSU students through the years have been successful when applying to the OU College of Allied Health.
Making the presentation to Wolgamott was OU College of Allied Health representatives Susan Tucker, Jan Womack and Jenielle Greenlee.
