I came to Cottey College as a student in 1960 from Yankton, South Dakota. I graduated from Cottey in 1962 with an Associate in Science degree and transferred back to the University of South Dakota to complete my studies. I am also very proud of the fact that I have a daughter, Molly Chaney Radtke, who graduated from here in 1988. I can honestly say that for both of us the friends we made here are still the best friends that we have in our lives. I lived in Minnesota for many years, and moved to Nevada, Missouri, in 2002 because I love this community and have many of my Cottey friends living in the area. I had not intended to work at Cottey, but because of my love for the school and my long-standing relationship with the P.E.O. Sisterhood, when the opportunity presented itself I jumped at the chance. I am a Past State P.E.O. President from Minnesota, and have been a member of the Sisterhood for over 51 years. The values of the sisterhood and of the college coexist in perfect harmony, and it is inspirational to be working with the wonderful young women who attend Cottey as well as the wonderful P.E.O.s from around the country and Canada who support the college and its students. I look forward to welcoming all of you to campus. A visit will convince you that what happens here is not just special, but also life-changing.
