Loyal and True Donor Spotlight
Kenneth E. Lawson
Orange & Black Level
Kenneth Lawson was inspired by his wife Krystal, to pursue a degree later in life. They attended OSU together beginning in 2007, and Lawson graduated Summa Cum Laude in Sociology before beginning dialysis due to an inherited kidney disease in the summer of 2010. Kenneth and his wife describe Oklahoma State as “offering so much, both inside and outside the classroom.” “We not only got a world-class education, but also received the support we needed in order to succeed.” Since his graduation in 2010 with honors, Lawson was chosen for a kidney transplant (December of 2015), and is doing quite well, enjoying retirement with Krystal in Kansas.
When asked to describe his Orange Passion, Lawson shared his wish,
“To give back with gratitude.”
