The Ambassador Award was presented to Cowley College custodian Gary Hale. The award recognizes individuals who have provided sustained volunteer or other service, or through philanthropic work to Cowley College.
Hale recently completed his third year as President of the Ark City Optimist Club. He also serves on the Board of the Big Brother and Big Sisters Northwest Community Center, and is involved with the Arkansas City Area Chamber of Commerce.
Along with this, Hale was a previous president of the Ark City Lions Club and started the fishing program at the Ark City Recreation Center.
