Cowley College conducts another successful College Goal Sunday event

 

For the second consecutive year, Cowley College held the College Goal Sunday event where students and their parents received professional, one-on-one help filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This year’s event was held on Sunday, February 23 inside Cowley College’s Webb-Brown Academic Center.

High schools represented by attendees were, South Haven, Winfield, Arkansas City, Udall, and Mulvane. Anthony Hawkins from South Haven High School was the recipient of a $500 scholarship.

Sally Palmer, Cowley College financial aid director, was among the individuals assisting with the event.

“We consider it a success if we can help one student through the process,” Palmer said. “In visiting with the volunteers I think our demographic area are getting very good information and assistance from their high school counselors and from admissions representatives from Cowley College and Southwestern College.”

College Goal Sunday makes applying for financial aid easier and helps ensure the student is considered for the maximum aid for which they are eligible. In Kansas, College Goal Sunday is a nonprofit event coordinated by the Kansas Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (KASFAA) and other interested and dedicated volunteers. This annual event is supported by funds from USA Funds; KASFAA; and the federal College Access Challenge Grant, administered by the Kansas Board of Regents.
