Wolfenbarger named March Student of the Month
Having been a candidate for Queen Alalah and Homecoming Queen, Cowley College sophomore Maycee Wolfenbarger has had an eventful school year. The secondary education major capped her year full of honors by being named the Cowley College March Student of the Month.
Maycee is the daughter of Aaron and Tara Wolfenbarger of Haysville, KS. She graduated from Campus High School in 2021. At Campus, she participated in cheerleading, Student Council, Chamber Orchestra, the National Honor Society, and was involved in the Youth Entrepreneurship program. She graduated in the top 10 percent of her class.
Wolfenbarger was not planning on attending Cowley College when she first started looking at colleges but was invited to campus to try out for the cheer team.
“Once I visited, I loved the campus as well as the cheer team and coaches,” Wolfenbarger said. “I am really glad I ended up at Cowley. I love the class sizes, and the teachers are really helpful. I also enjoy all the activities Cowley has to offer on campus.”
At Cowley she is a member of the cheer team, is a student ambassador, a work-study in the Wellness Center, and a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society.
“I didn’t know what College would be like, but Cowley has helped me step out of my comfort zone,” Wolfenbarger said. “I have gotten to know people from several different countries and be involved in some really cool things.”
She has volunteered at Roosevelt Elementary in Ark City and the Cowley County Humane Society. Wolfenbarger has also been named to the President’s Honor Roll each semester at Cowley and has a grade point average of 4.0.
“I take pride in my school work and put in countless hours studying, so it is rewarding to have my hard work recognized,” Wolfenbarger said.
Cowley College cheer coach Brandon Burke considers Wolfenbarger to be a dedicated, versatile, and talented student-athlete.
“She shows a true commitment to her team members and those who share the classroom,” Burke said. “Maycee's personal qualities are as impressive as her intellectual accomplishments. She is an extremely kind, sensitive, and sensible lady.”
After Cowley, she plans to attend Fort Hays State University to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Business Education with the goal to receive a Master’s Degree in counseling.
