Former University of Wyoming Assistant Professor Vanessa Fonseca will discuss an oral history project she directed on the UW news and information program “Wyoming Signatures” Sunday, Aug. 21, at 5:30 p.m. on Wyoming Public Television.

“Following the Manito Trail” documents the migrations Hispanic New Mexican families made to different parts of the United States during the last century looking for work and opportunity. Fonseca will talk about some of her discoveries from the project.

In another segment, Richard Horner, deputy director of emerging projects and technology from UW’s School of Energy Resources, will describe ways to use coal that don’t involve burning.

Also, Jennifer Anderson, nursing program director for Laramie County Community College, will explain how Wyoming is responding to the increased demand for registered nurses. Anderson will discuss the ReNEW (Revolutionizing Nursing Education in Wyoming) program, which starts this fall.

“Wyoming Signatures” is produced by UWTV of the UW Outreach School. Wyoming PBS can be seen over the air and via cable or satellite in communities throughout Wyoming. A complete list of channels can be found at
