International COTTEY Day

Wednesday, March 27, 2020

In March 2005, Cottey College, P.E.O.s and alumnae everywhere celebrated the first ever International COTTEY Day, celebrating the life and memory of Virginia Alice Cottey Stockard, the founder of Cottey College. This year, plan to celebrate International COTTEY Day on March 27, Virginia Alice Cottey’s birthday. Imagine the recognition from not only wearing a Cottey promotional item, but explaining what Cottey College is. This is a fantastic way to help get the word out to prospective students that Cottey College is not only a great institution, but there is a legion of women who support the goals and ideals of women’s education.
