Projects and Scholarships

What Drives Us? 

Communication, Cooperation, Professionalism & Service!

The purpose of the Barton Office Professionals is to promote communication and cooperation, increase professionalism, and benefit Barton Community College with our service projects.

Barton Community College's staff of committed individuals make up the Barton Office Professionals group.  Activities during the year include:

  • Monthly Meetings
  • Bosses' Day Breakfast
  • Easter Egg Hunts for CDC Daycare and Barton CC students
  • Christmas Cookie and Ornament Exchange for B-OP members


Our gatherings provide an opportunity for interaction with fellow education support personnel from all College departments.  Because we are all busy people with limited time to offer B-OP, no one is expected to attend every meeting or participate in every project. Member involvement is based upon personal work schedules, interest and availability.

Projects during the 2015-16 year included:

  • $500 Scholarship to student -- 2015-16 winner: Allison Levingston
  • Veteran's Day Breakfast
  • Secret Santa exchange between B-OP members
  • Easter Egg Hunts for Childcare Development Center and Barton students
  • Gift orders of cake, giant cookie, and Cougar treat bag on Main Campus

Birthday Treat Orders

Place an order with B-OP!

Cakes and cookies baked fresh, so make your order at least 7 business days in advance!

Orders are processed year-round with the exception of when Main Campus Offices are closed. Closings include Winter Break, Dec. 19, 2016 - Jan. 1, 2017 and Spring Break, Mar. 20 - 24, 2017

We look forward to continuing our 40+ year tradition of promoting professionalism and cooperation across campus while benefiting Barton’s faculty, staff, and students of all ages through our service projects. If this sounds good to you, come take a look. You will be warmly welcomed!
