National tragedy awareness

The month of September is National Suicide Prevention and Awareness month. In order to bring awareness to this tragedy, Cowley College’s Prevention and Awareness Team has set up a display at the Calder Bonfy Amphitheatre on the main campus in Arkansas City. There are 160 backpacks representing a percentage of the number of college age students who committed suicide during this past year. A few of the backpacks have notes or stories attached to them. The display will be up through Wednesday afternoon.
