Landscaping Project Nearing Completion
August 6, 2010
TORRINGTON, WY -
Thanks to a generous gift to the Eastern Wyoming College Foundation from the estate of Mary Lou Atkins, EWC is revitalizing its landscaping across the front of the main campus in Torrington.
The College contracted with Sawyer Waterscaping of Burns, Wyoming to construct and present a native Wyoming look to include formations of moss boulders, pondless water features, native plants and flagstone walkways. Sawyer Waterscaping is working with local contractors to complete the project.
With the permission of the family of Dr. Loran and Beth Morgan, the area in front of the student center which had been previously dedicated through their support has been blended into the overall look of the landscaping project. The donation by the Morgan family will still be honored with a plaque in that area.
The landscaping currently underway at the College is the first part of a long-range landscaping plan intended to provide a consistent look to the College's appearance and to revitalize several areas in need of attention. The College will also be receiving new windows, paint and carpeting in the Tebbet Classroom building funded through federal stimulus dollars. New signage for the buildings is also under development.
A dedication and re-dedication ceremony to honor Mary Lou Atkins and the Morgan family will be held later this fall.
