Cowley students prepare for educational trips
Denver, London and Paris will be some of the destinations that Cowley students and faculty travel to this spring for educational purposes.
In March the Journalism Club and Tyger Tawk Communications Club will be going to Paris, France for the International Media Seminar. Students will be attending the Seminar at the American University in Paris featuring journalists, writers, and marketing experts from around the globe. This is an opportunity for students to explore another culture and to see and hear the perspectives of others in the international media community. During the day students will attend seminar sessions led by world renowned speakers, while in the evening they may attend a dinner party at the apartment of one of the professors.
Connie Donatelli, vocal music director, and the Cowley County Singers have been invited to open the first session of the Chair Academy’s 17th Annual International Leadership Conference. The conference is in Denver, Colo. April 1-4, 2008. The choir will be performing at Friends University in Wichita the night before they leave, and will stop for two performances at high schools on their way to Denver. Their next stop will be a performance in Estes Park, Colo. before returning to Arkansas City.
May 22-27 will find 18 students and their instructors Scott MacLaughlin and Jamison Rhoads visiting London, England. Act I Drama Club and Theatre students will join EF Educational Tours for the London City Stay. They will be joined by a full time tour guide who will escort them on sightseeing tours of London and Windsor, as well as the Tower of London. They will also see theatre performances and have a three-day underground travel pass.
All of these students have been doing various and creative fundraisers to pay for their travel opportunities. If you would like to help these students on their way, you may make a donation to the Cowley College Endowment Association, P.O. Box 1147, Arkansas City, KS 67005 and earmark it for student educational travel.
