The Sower - Century Club Logo

President's Message

At Oklahoma Panhandle State University, we pride ourselves on our legacy of excellence. This year, as we celebrate our 110th anniversary, we honor that legacy by restoring one of the most iconic features of our campus, the Sower.

I invite you to be part of this great campaign to honor our history, and in doing so, honor your legacy as well as commemorate the success of the University with a lasting tribute to generations of the Panhandle family.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to our future.

Dr. Tim Faltyn,
University President

Century Club Logo

The Century Club is a specially designated group of OPSU supporters who give $100 or more annually. This year, all proceeds will be designated to the Sower restoration project.

With this campaign, we give new life to the Sower. The statue will undergo much needed repairs and a bronze casting will be made to ensure that it continues to be a centerpiece of the OPSU campus for future generations of Aggies.

As part of the Century Club, donors will receive a Century Club decal, a Sower lapel pin, and special recognition as a donor to the project.

Become An Honored Member

Designed and gifted to Panhandle Agricultural institute by Frank Ingels in 1915, the Sower has stood for 104 years as a campus icon for generations of students, alumni, faculty, staff, and community members. Designed to honor those who first made the panhandle their home, the Sower serves as a reminder of the pioneering spirit that built Panhandle State.

Over the years, the iconic statue has fallen into disrepair. In the 110th year of OPSU, the University graduated its largest class in the Spring, and this Fall welcomed the largest Freshman class in history. It is fitting that this year we replace the Sower with a bronze statue that will stand for another 100 years of enduring strength.

The bronze Sower will be rededicated in the spring of 2020. The original Sower will be placed on campus in display to preserve the historical value of this icon.
