Record number of students take part in Cowley College�s Junior Day
In an event that continues to grow each year, a record 131 high school juniors took part in Cowley College’s Junior Day held Wednesday at the school’s main campus in Arkansas City.
The purpose of Junior Day is for high school juniors to visit Cowley College’s campus and to learn more about what the school has to offer.
The day began with introductions and information about the college. Members of the Spirit Squad and the Temporal Mechanics Union then entertained the students with performances.
Following the entertainment, the students then had an opportunity to tour the campus and stop by the Earle N. Wright Community Room for lunch and prize give aways.
The high school juniors and Cowley College student ambassadors then headed to the college’s Recreation Building for a Dodgeball Tournament to cap the day.
Lory West, director of admissions at Cowley College, was pleased with how well the event went and hopes the students will want to come back next year for Senior Day.
“The day was absolutely outstanding and I am really proud of all the hard work that everyone put into making it such an amazing day,” West said.
West spoke highly of the work done by technical director of theatre Jamison Rhoads, Robert Rogers and Great Western Dining for providing lunch, the admissions staff and ambassadors for all their hard work in putting the day on, the Temporal Mechanics Union and cheerleaders for their performances, Kris Ripley and Mark Flickinger for their work on the Junior Day video and the grounds and maintenance crews as she heard several times how beautiful and welcoming the campus looked.
