FALLBROOK – Cottey College student Sophie Powell stopped by for a photo op with members of all five Fallbrook P.E.O. chapters during her winter break. A Fallbrook resident, Powell has now returned for her second semester at Cottey which is a woman's liberal arts college located in Nevada, Missouri, and owned by the P.E.O. sisterhood.

Sheila Risser, (from P.E.O. chapter UH) co-president of Santa Margarita Reciprocity Bureau and a Cottey College graduate herself, is seen with current Cottey College freshman Sophie Powell.

According to P.E.O. members, Powell began attending Cottey College a year early, has made lifelong friends already, loves her interesting classes and fabulous professors. The ratio of students to professor is 12 to 1 which they said is amazing considering the overcrowded classes in most schools today.

Powell made the Dean's list her first semester. P.E.O. member Genie Summers said, "We are exceedingly proud of this young woman and know her future will be exciting and productive."

Cottey was recently named a top 10 school for its size by U.S. News & World Report.
