|P.E.O. Chapter CW was organized in Sargent on April 17, 1923, with 13
charter members. 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
each other to achieve their highest aspirations.

Our Sargent chapter has provided loans, grants, and scholarships to many women in the area. For over 25 years the local chapter has awarded scholarships to women of the graduating classes of Sargent High School and recently also offered and awarded scholarships to Loup County High School graduates.
