One Director – WY: 2nd District: Albany and Carbon Counties

Gustave Anderson, Laramie, WY 

I graduated from UW in 2003 and have had a diverse career in education, oil & gas, economic development, information technology, and manufacturing. I am currently the Director of Operations for Avvid Corporation, an advanced manufacturing CNC company in Laramie. I have taught courses in the College of Engineering and hired UW students and graduates. This gives me a unique perspective of the institution. Since my own graduation, I have been consistently involved in the UWAA and helped start Alumni Networks in Houston and Michigan, as well as support the Energy Alumni Network.

The community of UW Alumni is an important part of my life. In all of my professional and volunteer roles, I have worked to grow leaders and encourage others. My desire is to do the same by serving on the UWAA Board.

Nancy English, Laramie, WY 

My time at UW began when I was 12 and attended the UW lab school. It was there that my love for UW began. After graduation I became a lifetime member of the Alumni Association. I was a part-time adjunct faculty while teaching. I married the late Mike English, volleyball coach. After his death I started the Mike English Legacy Scholarship Fund and my husband, Brad Waldbauer and I have donated the Coach Mike English Volleyball locker room. I am active in Cowboy Joe, The UW Alumni Association, and Chi Omega as the House Corporation Board and Personnel advisor.

My Love for UW comes from the communities and traditions that I had while attending school. I feel that the more communities we build, the more they will return, join, support the university and give to the foundation. This is in any area of the campus – science, engineering, music, agriculture and many others because no matter where we are Wyoming is home.

Pepper Jo Six, Laramie, WY 

It is with great pleasure that I submit my name for consideration to run as a candidate for the UW Alumni Association Board of Directors. 

Anyone who knows me knows that I bleed brown and gold! The University of Wyoming has been an important part of my life, both personally and professionally. I graduated UW in 1997 and I have worked at UW for most of my professional career (23+ years).  

The bulk of my career on campus has been in the UW Admissions Office. This position is really where my love for UW was cemented. Working with current students to bring in a new class of students every year, was an amazing “high!” It was so much fun teaching these students the Cowboy Joe song and other notable traditions, like throwing the pinecone in T-Rex’s mouth.   

My husband, Randal Six is also another proud UW alum. As annual season ticket holders to both UW Basketball and Football; we enjoy these opportunities to be a part of the vibrant UW culture.  We are Cowboy Joe members as well as donors to various programs on campus. We are also proud UW parents as both children are or will be attending the university.

UW has enhanced my life in every way. It is my time to give back! I would be honored to be a board member for the UW Alumni Association.
