Cordell Was Once Home To Christian College

Most people are not aware of the past existence and history of the Cordell Christian College. Three businessmen, J.C. Harrel, G.A.W. Fleming, and W.D. Hockaday, founded the college in 1907. There were several name changes down through the years. It began as Cordell Christian College, but was renamed Western Oklahoma Christian College in 1921. Then in 1925 the school became Oklahoma Christian College.
