On Friday, November 13 at 6:45 a.m. a group of 32 members of the Cowley College community gathered to walk in memory of Mart Wiechman, who was struck by a vehicle and killed Friday, October 30 at approximately 6:45 a.m. in front of Dillon’s on Summit Street in Arkansas City.


Anna Solis, a member of the Cowley track team and a Cowley Press staffer organized the walk after hearing about Mart’s tragic death.


“Anna has such a heart for people and she really felt strongly about organizing this walk to show recognition for a man that most members of the community passed daily, but knew nothing about,” Meg Smith, director of journalism said.


The walk began in front of Galle-Johnson Hall and ended in front of Dillon’s.
