How exciting it has been to participate in founding a program that began as a “seed” and has since born fruit, benefiting many families in our community….It has been both gratifying and humbling to all three founders.

As one of the earliest contributors to the Cotillion for Achievement program it has been rewarding to see it flourish and continue to recognize outstanding achievement of our youth.

The ‘Cotillion’ program presented me a unique opportunity to interact with other successful high school seniors and community leaders. Those “people bonds” helped me in establishing my dental practice in St. Joseph seven years later.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time judging for the Cotillion scholarship. As an employer that hires many young adults, it was refreshing to see the abilities and the involvement of so many of our young adults. The quality of our youth in this area of Northwest Missouri is amazing.
Brad McAnaly, Store Director, Hy-Vee

The Cotillion Scholarship provides a unique opportunity for college financial support.  The best and finest students in Andrew and Buchanan County schools attend seminars and a ball that are a fun way to make friends, “polish” existing talents, and earn scholarship money! I am proud to continue to be associated with this quality program.
Gene Teeter, Retired High School Guidance Counselor
