TORRINGTON, WY –
For years, students of all ages have been able to obtain college credit for classes offered in Wheatland. This has been made possible through the Eastern Wyoming College Outreach Center located in the old Wheatland Junior High building. EWC Outreach Coordinator, Sue Trautwein has been the coordinator for twenty-five years.
A large number of adult students have also seen the benefit from having a community college outreach center located in their community. Many have earned a degree from EWC and have gone on to pursue or obtain a bachelors or masters degree.
The EWC enrollment at the Wheatland Outreach Center for the 2007-2008 year included the following: 47.42 total Full-Time Equivalent (FTE), 101 total credit headcount, 72 concurrent enrollment, 167 community education enrollment. Wheatland also had just over 60 students who participated in Adult Basic Education, General Education Diploma and English as a Second Language courses.
