Converse County passes EWC tax issue for new facility

Eastern Wyoming College has been providing educational services to Converse County for over 20 years.  During this time, the College has had the opportunity to forge many partnerships.  Partnerships with the Converse County School Districts allow high school students to enroll in college courses at no expense to the student.  EWC also works with the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy by providing college credit for courses and guest instructors.  A newly formed partnership with Converse County Memorial Hospital will allow the College to work with hospital administrators on the development of health technology programs that serve the needs of the county. 
During the past couple of months, these community partners and others have provided excellent support to the College as they seek to build a new campus in the Douglas Business Park.   Individuals and businesses donated their time, talents and funds to support the tax election campaign. 
“The College is pleased to report that the many hours of dedicated individuals paid off in the successful election of the one-cent tax proposal.  Next steps will include continuing to work with our community partners as we move forward to secure architectural services for the new facility,” shared EWC President Dr. Tom Armstrong.
“Many individuals helped us spread the word about this project and we are so grateful for the help and support in Converse County.”
