 The Cowley County CourierTraveler recently released its eighth annual Best of Cowley County publication. This year, our community voted in over 130 categories, selecting Cowley College as the Best in Live Theater, the Best College, and a Favorite among Fitness Centers went to the Cowley College Wellness Center.

“Cowley College has the privilege of being the artistic and cultural center for Cowley County, and we with Cowley Theatre take that responsibility very seriously.  Cowley Theatre’s students, staff, and faculty work to attain the highest quality productions possible for our audiences.  It is an honor to be recognized again by our community for that work. Thank you, thank you, thank you.  This recognition is both a celebration of our community’s confidence in us and a reminder of why we do what we do”, said Director of Theatre Nick Albrecht.

According to Wellness Center Director Rikki Hettenbach, “Cowley College is the pillar of this community in so many ways. We are involved with almost all community events in Ark City. Also, the Golden Tigers program is wonderful for retired community members at a very reasonable price. Thank you for voting the Cowley Wellness Center as the Favorite Fitness Center! We try to always have a fun and positive atmosphere for all.” 

We here at Cowley College are so grateful to all those who shared their love and support of our school as we continue to provide opportunities for learning excellence, personal achievement, and community engagement.
