Student of the Year

Daniela Salcedo

Pre-Med Major
I’m so proud of everyone there last night, and I can't wait to see where life leads them and the amazing things they do.

Daniela Salcedo was named Student of the Year during the Academic Awards Banquet for 2023-2024. With a 3.7 GPA and a place on the Dean’s Honor Roll, Salcedo hopes to become a clinical lab technician.

Salcedo, a Queen Alalah finalist, was also our November Student of the Month. During that conversation, we learned that she has “lived in Arkansas City for the past ten years and graduated from Arkansas City High School in 2022”. At ACHS, she involved herself in band, concert band, AC Players, Arkettes, Ark Highs, Usherettes, cheer, symphonic choir, and the National Honor Society.

After coming to Cowley, Salcedo became involved in Cowley College Singers, Concert Choir, Jazz Band, and Concert Band. In addition, she became a Student Ambassador and an On-Campus work-study for the Cowley College Bookstore. 

As if that wasn’t enough to keep anyone busy, Salcedo also actively participates in many clubs and activities. A member of Act One Drama Club, she has been involved in both fall musicals and Spring plays on the stage in Brown Theater. Other clubs Salcedo is a member of include Phi Theta Kappa, the International Student Organization, and Voices Heard.
