"We moved to Sterling in 1999, after living in Wichita for most of our lives. After my dad’s passing in 2010, my brother started searching out our roots here in Sterling and found that our great great Grandfather, J.O. Stow was one of the very first trustees at Cooper College and influential in helping to establish it. My great grandmother and great grandfather were married by Dr. Spencer. Our family has deep roots here in Sterling, which we were unaware of when we moved here.
