Scholars and donors pack the Wright Room

 

Tuesday evening, Cowley College’s Earle N. Wright Community Room played host to a record turnout of individuals attending the Cowley College Foundation Annual Scholarship Reception.


The event, in its seventh year, brings together scholarship recipients with the community members, donors and alumni who donate money to the foundation in support of scholarships. The reception has continued to be a success and is held each year thanks to a generous contribution from the Trust Company of Kansas, which has been the event sponsor from the first year.


Over the course of the evening, the Foundation awarded 145 scholarships with a total value of $153,470 for the 2017-2018 academic year.
Attendees were welcomed by Cowley College’s vice president of institutional advancement Dr. Kori Gregg and the Foundation board president Mike Munson. Lena Spencer, foundation coordinator, and Lisa Grose, scholarship coordinator, were on hand to ensure the event was a success.
Dr. Gregg thanked the donors in attendance for their generous support to student scholarships.


“You are changing lives and making a difference. Your scholarship matters,” Dr. Gregg said. “Your scholarships open countless doors to students. Without you so many dreams would go unfulfilled.”


During the scholarship presentation, Dr. Gregg had the audience answer trivia questions about Cowley College with a chance to win prizes.
Sophomore Julian Cornejo, the recipient of the Scott MacLaughlin Memorial Scholarship, also spoke at the event.


“Thanks for giving students a chance to continue their education through these generous scholarships,” Cornejo said. “Without this scholarship I would not be able to pay for my schooling.”
