NEVADA, MO -- Cottey College is preparing for Commencement and other related activities. As these important events draw closer, drivers on Austin are asked to take note of the increased pedestrian and visitor traffic and to drive safely. The public is invited to attend the following Commencement weekend events.

            The weekend begins Friday, May 11, with the Merry Ann DeVaney Sauls Writing Awards Contest at 10 a.m. in the Missouri Recital Hall. Named after Mrs. Sauls, a 1959 graduate of Cottey College, the contest was developed to enhance the prestige of academic writing in the four disciplines at Cottey. Awards are given in the four areas of fine arts, humanities, math and science, social sciences, and an additional award in composition.

            The activities continue that evening with Baccalaureate at 7:30 p.m. in the Cottey College Chapel. The Spiritual Life Committee sponsors this special service.
