Committee to Plan UW-Casper Student Celebration

December 10, 2018

The University of Wyoming at Casper has established a “Celebration of Excellence” committee to plan the details of the upcoming reception to acknowledge students who are completing their studies.

If students wish to walk in a formal commencement ceremony, that event will be held in Laramie and coordinated by the student through that campus. The Celebration of Excellence, meanwhile, will be May 7, 2019, at the Central Wyoming Fairgrounds Industrial Building in Casper at 4:30 p.m. Students can attend both activities or choose between the two.

The new committee consists of staff, faculty and students, including: Rosalind Grenfell, Valorie Lyman, Dana Volney, Brooke Knabenshue, Rochelle McCoy, Theressa Smith and Toni Lattea.

The next step the committee will take is to secure speakers, photography options and light hors d’oeuvres for the celebration. A participation sign-up sheet will be at the main UW-Casper office.

Students and their families and friends who plan to attend graduation in Laramie are strongly encouraged to make lodging reservations at their earliest opportunity, as accommodations fill quickly. It also is important they stay attentive to university announcements on graduation deadlines and instructions for ordering regalia, parking and other details. As information becomes available, details may be found on the UW commencement website at
