FIVE SLOTS OPEN FOR CWC EXPEDITION TO GANNETT PEAK

FIVE SLOTS OPEN FOR CWC EXPEDITION TO GANNETT PEAK

Five slots have opened for Central Wyoming College’s expedition to Gannett Peak, which is scheduled for August 8-19.
 
“It really is a fantastic adventure learning opportunity at a very good price,” said Outdoor
Education Professor Darran Wells, who leads the expedition to Wyoming’s highest peak.
For the cost of tuition for four credits and a $290 fee, Wyoming students can join the guided climb of Gannett for $658. The fees cover meals, transport, group equipment, instruction and permits. Students must be 16 or older.

 

Participants may take it for no college credit and the cost is reduced to $325 regardless of state residency.
 
For the first time, Wells has obtained permission from the U.S. Forest Service to hike out at Green River Lakes, which he said makes the route significantly shorter and easier in the past.
 
For more information, contact Wells at 307-349-9205.

Riverton, Wyo.— Metallica’s foundation, All Within My Hands, continues its multimilliondollar investment in critical workforce programs at community colleges nationwide. Among the schools, Central Wyoming College was selected from a competitive pool of applicants to receive $100,000 to transform the futures of students in the community.

“Central Wyoming College is excited to be a part of something that is elevating the importance of career paths where people can be really successful,” says President Brad Tyndall. “Trades, like our auto program, are so desperately needed by our communities right now. We’re incredibly thankful for Metallica’s generosity and All Within My Hands’ support.”

“Metallica’s mission to bring ‘dignity to the trades’ is aligned with Central Wyoming College’s purpose of providing high quality education in all of our trades programs,” says Lynne McAuliffe, CWC Dean of Business, Technical, Health and Safety. “We selected the Automotive Technology program to be the focus of this initiative in order to bring additional resources and attention to the demanding profession of automotive technicians.”
