Meyer named Student of the Year


Student of the YearOn a night he was recognized as Cowley College’s top student in the Natural Science Department and named one of the school’s Outstanding Student Ambassadors, it was only fitting that Clinton Meyer would cap the evening by being named Cowley College’s Student of the Year during the annual Honors and Awards ceremony held Tuesday in the Earle N. Wright Community Room.

Meyer, along with the school’s other Student of the Month selections, were up for the prestigious honor of Student of the Year.

At Cowley, Meyer is involved in the Cowley Activity Awareness Team, FCA, Movie Club, Weightlifting Club, and Intramurals. He is also a Cowley Tutor and a Student Ambassador.

Meyer, who came to the school’s main campus in Arkansas City from Bishop Carroll High School in Wichita, has treasured his two years at Cowley.

“I am truly proud to represent the school that has given so much to me,” Meyer said. “Nothing can replace the memories, the people, and the experiences I have had at Cowley. There is no place like it.”

During this school year, Meyer has taught physical education and PSR to Sunday school children (fourth graders) at Sacred Heart Catholic School. He also helped work with wrestlers at Bishop Carroll High School and is the captain of his recreational paintball team in Wichita.            

During the Honors and Awards ceremony a representative from each department at Cowley College honored students that have excelled during the 2011-12 academic year.

Meyer, who is a member of the Dean’s Honor Roll and has a 3.49 grade point average at Cowley, plans to transfer to Kansas State University. While at Kansas State he plans on earning his Masters in Chemistry. He then plans on attending the University of Kansas Medical School and would like to one day find a career working in a lab creating new medicines and compounds to better the quality of mankind.
