Peabody Energy continues to invest in Eastern Wyoming College’s Welding program.

The money was used to purchase Flux Core Guns liners and 1/16” wire for EWC’s power sources. This will enable students to use equipment that they would find in a working environment.

“Peabody has held recruiting luncheons for our students the past 2 years to talk about their business and opportunities available to our students,” said Welding Department Head, Lynn Bedient. “They have chosen 4 of our students as interns and one as a scholarship recipient.”
