The majority of the money will be used for Endowed Scholarships, while $10,000 worth of scholarships will begin being awarded. The scholarships will be awarded based on financial need and are for students that do not qualify for other scholarships.
“Hopefully, this will encourage kids who want to go to college but don’t have the money,” Carlla Pike said.
Larry and Carlla Pike have owned L.G. Pike Construction Company Inc. for the past 40 years. The Pike’s have a son, a daughter, and grandchildren that have attended Cowley.
Terri Morrow, Cowley College Dean of Development and College Relations, is delighted to have this scholarship with very few restrictions placed on it.
“We have students that enroll with low GPA’s or perhaps can only take classes part time so they do not qualify for other scholarships,” Morrow said. “This financial help will give them an opportunity to proceed with their educational goals. We are very grateful to the Pikes for establishing this wonderful scholarship.”
