Cowley students read to area school childrenAs part of the “Snuggle Up and Read” festivities on Thursday, more than 50 Cowley College students and coaches took time out to read books to children at Jefferson Elementary School in Arkansas City.


Mike Rosales, TRiO advisor and transfer specialist, visited with teachers and staff at Jefferson Elementary who expressed their appreciation of the Cowley students volunteering to read.


“Those at Jefferson told me that their students look up to our College students and want to grow up to be just like them,” Rosales said. “Even though reading to a young child seems so simple, it touches these students’ hearts and they will not forgot about the time they spent with our Cowley Tigers.”
