EWC responds to student death

It is with great sadness that Eastern Wyoming College reports that freshman Kaylie Haun, Torrington, Wyoming, was in a vehicle accident on Friday evening, March 7, 2014, which resulted in her death.  Kaylie was a member of the Eastern Wyoming College women’s rodeo team.

“We are always deeply saddened by the passing of a student, especially knowing the potential ahead of them.  Kaylie will be greatly missed,” shared EWC president Dr. Tom Armstrong.

As a member of the rodeo team, Kaylie participated in barrel racing, goat tying and breakaway roping.

“The EWC Rodeo program is deeply saddened at the loss of our teammate and friend Kaylie Haun.  Kaylie was a very motivated and positive student athlete.  She had the ability to brighten any day with her smile and great attitude she always had both in and out of the arena.  She will be missed.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the Haun family,” added EWC rodeo coach Jake Clark.

At this time, funeral arrangements are pending.
