Student of the Month

Emma Badley

Elementary Education
My experience at Cowley has been great, being a student ambassador and a finalist for Queen Alalah helped me break out of my shell.

Well-liked by students and faculty, sophomore Emma Badley was recently named the school’s December Student of the Month. While at Cowley, she has been a part of the President's Honor Roll with a 4.0 GPA, is currently serving as a student ambassador, is a member of Phi Theta Kappa, and was the first runner-up for Queen Alalah XCI.

Badley graduated from Arkansas City High School in 2022. She participated in choir, basketball, softball, the National Honor Society, and the Kay Club at ACHS. She is majoring in elementary education and wants to teach first grade after college.
