Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association a regional cooperative of which WYRULEC is a member, recently provided Eastern Wyoming College with a $1,000 for scholarships.  Over the past four years, Tri-State’s investment in EWC students has totaled $4,000 and because they participate in EWC’s matching endowment program, their total investment has grown to $8,000.

Julie Kilty, serves as assistant Board Secretary for Tri-State Cooperative and recently served as a Board of Trustee for EWC from 2012 – 2016.  Ms. Kilty noted that “Tri-State has a commitment to supporting the communities they serve and a firm belief in higher education.”

John Hansen Director of Institutional Development at EWC further commented on the donation “Working with community partners to invest in students is one of the core functions of EWC’s Foundation and since these dollars are endowed they will live-on for future generations.”

Eastern Wyoming College’s Foundation provides over $120,000 a year in annual support of scholarships and those funds are manifested through endowments.
