Kinzie, a Cowley College sophomore who was crowned Queen Alalah LXXXVI on Oct. 27, was awarded a Dorothy Moore Harbaugh (Queen Alalah I) Endowed Scholarship worth $600 and a scholarship on behalf of the Ark City Clinic worth $500.

“I am very thankful for these scholarships,” Kinzie said. “They will help pay for my education after Cowley.”

Burroughs was presented with a $350 scholarship, thanks to the Arkalalah Executive Committee.

“This is amazing,” Burroughs said. “This will go towards buying books at my next school.”

Kori Gregg, Cowley College vice president for institutional advancement; Lisa Grose, Cowley College scholarship coordinator; and Tasha Bucher, executive secretary for the Arkalalah Executive Committee, were on hand to present Kinzie and Burroughs with the scholarships.
