Endowed Scholar Jordan Lukert named Cowley’s 2010-2011 Student of the Year
Dedicating his time to many activities and organizations on Cowley College’s main campus in Arkansas City, sophomore Jordan Lukert was named Cowley College’s Student of the Year during the school’s annual Honors and Awards Ceremony held April 19 in the Earle N. Wright Community Room.
Lukert, along with the school’s other Student of the Month selections, were up for the prestigious honor of Student of the Year.
At Cowley, Lukert was the president of Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Phi Beta Lambda, and Phi Theta Kappa. He also served as a student ambassador, Cowley Tutor, and was a resident assistant in the Storbeck Dormitory. He was named the school’s Student of the Month this past September, was a member of the Dean’s Honor Roll, and was the winner of last year’s Puttin’ on the Hits contest. He also was crowned Homecoming King, was named to the All-Kansas Academic Team for PTK, named Who’s Who Among American Students, and placed first at the PBL state competition in Sales Presentation.
“It has been an honor to serve everyone here at Cowley,” said Lukert, who was also named Cowley’s Tutor of the Year during the banquet. “My being named Student of the Year would not have happened without the individuals here at Cowley that have contributed to my life. My time at Cowley has been a blast!”
A representative from each department at Cowley College honored students that have excelled during the 2010-11 academic year during the ceremony.
“We want to recognize and honor the students for their accomplishments as well as thank the instructors and faculty at Cowley for helping them reach their goals,” Cowley College president Dr. Patrick J. McAtee said during the ceremony.
Lukert, who posted a 3.89 grade point average at Cowley, plans to transfer to Wichita State University.
