Foundation president wins trustee award

January 1, 2012

A longtime member of the Central Wyoming College Foundation was presented with a Leadership Award from the Wyoming Association of Community College Trustees Thursday night.

Joe Geraud, who has served as the Foundation’s president for the past ten years, was honored at the WACCT’s annual Awards and Legislative Reception in Cheyenne for his service as a college volunteer.

Geraud began serving on the CWC Foundation’s Board of Directors in 1993 and was appointed as president in 2001. In this role, he has actively promoted the college while pursuing external resources to build the Foundation’s assets.

Each year, the state’s seven community colleges nominate outstanding staff members, trustees and foundation volunteers who are honored at the WACCT Awards and Legislative reception.

Also nominated from CWC were Senior Information Technologies Technician Craig Kucera for the professional staff award, Enrollment Services assistant Brenda Barlow for the classified staff award, and English instructor Buck Tilton for the faculty award. Kelly Niemeyer was nominated from CWC for the student leadership award.
