The Difference is Cottey
P.E.O. is a philanthropic organization where women CELEBRATE the advancement of women; EDUCATE women through scholarships, grants, awards, loans, and stewardship of Cottey College and MOTIVATE women to achieve their highest aspirations.
Cottey College was gifted to the P.E.O. Sisterhood in 1927 by Cottey founder Virginia Alice Cottey Stockard. Since then, the College, its alumnae, and the P.E.O. Sisterhood have worked together to realize Virginia Alice’s premise that women should have the same access to excellent educational opportunities as men.
