EWC Replaces Sign on Highway 26
August 20, 2003
(Torrington, WY) Eastern Wyoming College is happy to announce it has placed a new sign on the intersection of Highway 26 and West C Street. The sign that was at that location was hard to read and in need of replacement; and with the college going through a branding process, the timing was right to make the needed change. "Thanks to the cooperation and assistance of the State of Wyoming and the City of Torrington, we were able to upgrade an old, weathered, painted sign to this. We are really proud of the institution and this new sign shows that pride," said EWC Board Trustee, Carl Rupp. The new sign is the same design as the signs at the Large Animal Facility.
Ron Laher, Dean of Administration, recaps the project, "I believe the community is generally supportive of efforts to improve our presence at that intersection. We started looking into this project almost two years ago, around the same time that the College Board was formalizing the emphasis on student enrollment, recruitment, and retention in strategic planning. This project was fairly expensive to accomplish, and we knew it was going to be, but a replacement sign was badly needed. With the assistance of GSG Architecture, a small group of dedicated college employees and Trustees were involved in planning the sign, identifying desirable features that led to the selected design, and overseeing the major decisions of the project. I am very grateful for their participation and input. Aaker Signs & Designs of Casper was the fabricator and general contractor. They did a terrific job!"
