Wednesday, September 19, 2012News Release
Serving as a valuable employee of Cowley College for the past 32 years, Mike Crow announced his retirement effective December 31, 2012, during Monday night’s Board of Trustees meeting held in the Patrick J. McAtee Dining Center.
Crow started working at the college in August 1980 as the superintendent of buildings and grounds. He then served as the maintenance supervisor for a number of years as well as the director of buildings and grounds before assuming his current title of manager of preventive maintenance/energy management systems and reporting.
"I have done a little bit of everything during my time at the college," Crow said.
Cowley College president Dr. Patrick J. McAtee appreciates all that Crow has done for the school over the past 32 years.
"When you lose somebody that has 32 years of experience in taking care of our campus it is a huge loss," McAtee said. “We are sorry to lose him, but wish him all the best in retirement.”
Crow and his wife, Susan, plan to travel more and get down to the house they own on Grand Lake in Oklahoma more often. They also want to spend more time exploring their hobby of genealogy.
"I will certainly miss many things about Cowley and the people I have come to know," Crow said. “Cowley has been a pretty rewarding place to work. I hate to retire, but it is time to pursue other things.”
