WyoTech in Laramie is named to this year’s President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. It’s the fifth consecutive year the Laramie campus has won the award. The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) awarded the honors to the Laramie campus. The Honor Roll recognizes higher education institutions that offer exemplary community services and achieve meaningful outcomes in their communities.
“In 2011, the Laramie campus logged over 13,896 volunteer hours,” noted Guy Warpness, campus president. “Receiving this honor five consecutive years illustrates our continued commitment to the community.”
More than 1,000 students at the Laramie campus got involved in some form of community service in 2011. The students helped on a number of projects, and partnered with the Laramie Beautification Committee for their Spring Community Clean-Up Day.
Perhaps the students’ most touching community service effort was the restoration of a fallen soldier’s (Bruce Hays) pickup for his wife. The family and friends of Captain Bruce Hayes were invited to the Laramie campus for a special unveiling of the completed truck in November of 2011.
The lessons learned from participating in community projects will last a lifetime for the Laramie students. And their career training prepares them to compete for many of today’s exciting entry-level automotive industry job openings.
