UW Summer High School Institute Students Aid Fire Relief Effort

June 26, 2014
UW Summer High School Institute logo

University of Wyoming Summer High School Institute participants have raised funds for Laramie’s downtown fire relief program and will present a check to the Laramie Main Street Alliance Saturday, June 28, at 10:30 a.m. at the Crane-Hill dining area.

The students set up a series of car wash stations around town June 18, and raised more than $600 to help the downtown businesses harmed by the recent fire (smoke and water damage included).

The Summer High School Institute provides a place where some the state's talented sophomores live and study in an environment with no pressure for grades, and share ideas and friendship with other gifted students.

The program draws talented high school sophomore students to UW for an intensive examination of unanswered questions and unresolved challenges. 

Each year the participants complete a community service project. Last year’s students helped the Main Street Alliance prepare a wall for a mural, cleaned the historic train depot and pulled weeds in the parks downtown.
