Lt. Governor To Attend Groundbreaking at Cowley College’s Sumner Site

Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer will be in Wellington Wednesday afternoon for a groundbreaking at the future site of Cowley College’s Sumner County campus.

The site is located just east of Walmart on U.S. 160 Highway. Colyer is among numerous area dignitaries expected to offer remarks at the event, which is scheduled for 1 p.m.

Agora Architecture will have 3D Virtual Modeling goggles available at the groundbreaking ceremonies for individuals to get an interactive first look at the Sumner Campus before it is constructed.

In addition, large paper-based renderings will be available for public viewing.

In Nov. 2016, Sumner County voters approved the passage of a half-cent county sales tax to construct a comprehensive Cowley College campus in the heart Sumner County to provide workforce training and educational services for the businesses and citizens of Sumner County and the surrounding regions.
