Students in Cowley College’s Academic Civic Engagement through Service recently spent the day cleaning up debris at the Cowley State Fishing Lake.

According to ACES sponsor James Fry, the group picked up more than 25 bags of trash.

“It was a good day of getting to know each other,” Fry said.

Six ACES students also recently began painting the parking lot at the First United Methodist Church in Arkansas City. The students were Seth Gibbs, Nathan Mann, Jaron McKinney, Elexis Bates, Shanna Nichols and Jamie Young.

“They all worked very hard and we will be going out to finish this week,” ACES sponsor James Fry said.

The ACES program involves active participants in the local community, selflessly giving of their time and talents. Connections are made between classroom work and work in service.
