Cowley College hosted the 11th annual Arts & Humanities Day in Arkansas City on Wednesday, February 17. A total of 178 students, parents and teachers took part in the event.

The event was one of the largest in the 11 years it has been conducted.


“Mark Flickinger had instructors tell him Arts & Humanities day was one of the best events they have attended,” Marcus Hicks, director of admissions said. “Thank you to the admissions recruiters for their hard work in the schools promoting the event.”


Flickinger also praised the work admissions representative Brandi Gibbs did coordinating the event.

 
Those attending Arts & Humanities Day had the opportunity to compete for scholarships, cash vouchers, and awards. They also got to take in performances by Cowley College’s vocal and instrumental performing arts groups, tour the school’s music, theatre and arts programs, and interact with current students, faculty and staff.


Auditions and interviews were held for art and graphic design, creative writing, theatre, studio and musical theatre dance, vocal music, instrumental music, and piano scholarships. Graduating seniors were eligible to audition for theatre, vocal music, instrumental music and piano scholarships.


Student artwork was displayed and prizes were given in several different categories.


Prizes awarded included scholarships and cash prizes. Graduating seniors were eligible for Art & Design, Mass Media, and Creative Writing Scholarships.


Timothy Hardman, who last year won Best of Show in the Senior Division Creative Writing portfolio category and accepted a Creative Writing Scholarship to attend Cowley College, joined Lucia Morales and Nancy Lartey in presenting some of their original works to the students in attendance.


Jocelyn Young of Belle Plaine High School won the Senior Division Creative Writing portfolio, and Quinn Johnson of Arkansas City High School won the Junior Division Creative Writing portfolio.
