Area businessman donates popcorn machine to Cowley's Mulvane campus


Popcorn MachineHaving provided vending services to Cowley College’s Mulvane Campus for the past 10 years, Shad Snodgrass, owner of American Vending, recently donated a popcorn machine to the school.

“This was a way for me to give back to the students and staff here at the college,” Snodgrass said. “We want to make this the best experience possible for the students.”

Along with donating the popcorn machine, Snodgrass also gave the school a 50-pound bag of popcorn kernels, two large tubs of butter, and bags to put the popcorn in.

“When Shad said he wanted to do this for us I thought it was pretty awesome of him,” Cowley College’s Mulvane Center Coordinator Cynthia Jones said. “It was such a generous thing for him to do, our students will truly enjoy this.”

Jones said the machine has already been put to good use and will be used for future club and organization events, such as when they show scary movies during Halloween Week.

 “This provides the students a way to feel more social and connected to one another,” Jones said.

Enrollment at the Mulvane-Bloomenshine Center has nearly doubled from this time a year ago.

“We are growing by leaps and bounds,” Jones said.

Snodgrass said his company, American Vending, not only provides vending machines for Cowley College but for numerous businesses around the Sedgwick and Sumner County areas. The company can be reached by calling 316-789-9929.
