Somerville will be responsible for connecting alumni to the college, while also planning outings, educational programs and workshops for the Golden Tigers program.

Somerville was happy to have an opportunity to meet several individuals in the Golden Tigers program during the come-and-go reception.

“I really wanted to make sure the Golden Tiger folks know who I am,” Somerville said. “It is good for them to put a face with the name. I want them to know that if they have any questions or concerns that I am here for them.”

Somerville is a graduate of Wichita State University where she earned her Bachelors of Arts in Communication. She also attended Cowley College where she studied secondary education.

She enjoyed her time at Cowley as a student and is once again excited to be part of the Cowley community.

“It has been fun planning new events for now and in the future with the Golden Tigers and alumni,” Somerville said.

Short-term classes, hands-on workshops, exercise sessions, and enlightening day trips are offered throughout the Fall and Spring semesters.
