Terri Tarpey Srch ’74

“Cottey College defined my future and transformed me from an adolescent into an adult,” says Terri Tarpey Srch, who spent one year at Cottey before leaving to get married. Though Terri didn’t earn a Cottey degree, Cottey was firmly affixed in her heart. Terri says it gave her the self-confidence to earn a college degree 20 years later, succeed as an advertising executive, and follow her dreams. She met lifelong friends, collected wonderful memories, and became a P.E.O. state president. Terri never misses an opportunity to serve or to give.

“I am thankful for my education as well as for the opportunity to help young women reach their full potential.”
