EWC GO bond issue proposition for new facilities successful

Eastern Wyoming College has been serving Goshen County and the region since 1948. During this time, the College has asked the voters to support growth and expansion in 1966, 1974, and now again in 2014. Each time the voters have supported EWC.

During the past several months the EWC Board of Trustees, Foundation Directors, administration, faculty, staff, and volunteers have provided excellent assistance and guidance as the College sought support for the Career and Technical Education Center (CTEC) and the Agricultural Technology Education Center (ATEC). Individuals and businesses donated their time, talents, and funds to support the general obligation bonds campaign.

“The College is pleased to report that the many hours of dedicated individuals have paid off in the successful passage of the EWC GO Bonds,” shared EWC Interim President Dr. Rick Patterson. “Many individuals helped us spread the word about these projects and we are so grateful for the help and commitment to higher education in Goshen County.”

The College is currently working with the State of Wyoming Department of Administration and Information, Construction Management Division and their architects on the programmatic space requirements for the CTEC. Bidding for the CTEC will take place in the Spring of 2015. Programmatic design work and architectural planning for the ATEC will continue in 2015.
