Cowley College named Merit Award winner by Kansas Department of Commerce


As part of Business Appreciation Month, the Kansas Department of Commerce recently named Cowley College a Merit Award recipient.

The award is part of the Kansas Department of Commerce’s annual celebration of Kansas businesses and their contributions to their communities and the state economy.

Businesses were nominated in one of four categories: manufacturing/distribution, service, retail and hospital/non-profit. Cowley College was nominated in the service category by the Arkansas City Chamber of Commerce.

“I want to congratulate all the businesses recognized this year,” said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George through a press release. “They represent the very best of their communities and Kansas. These awards are a way the state recognizes the business accomplishments and community contributions that allow Kansas to be the best place to live and work.”
