Why I Joined the CM Program and What it Means to Me: When I first came to UW, I was studying Architectural Engineering and wanted to focus in Construction Management. I was always interested in vertical construction but after my freshman year something just wasn’t clicking with my major. It was that I discovered the Construction Management degree program. Ever since I changed majors, I’ve been excited to learn and couldn’t be happier with my choice.

What I’m Excited For and Looking Forward to with CM: I’m excited to see the Construction Management program grow so others can have the same enjoyment for learning as I have. I am also looking forward to my Internship with James G. Davis Construction this summer that I would not have been able to pursue without the education and training the Construction Management program has provided me.

Clubs & Involvement: UW Equestrian Team; Phi Sigma Rho Sorority

Why I Joined the CM Program and What it Means to Me: I didn’t always know CM is what I wanted to do. I started out as a Civil Engineering major at UW. After doing a transportation internship my freshman year I realized I really liked field work. I also liked seeing a project go from start to finish rather than just contributing to a small part and being done. My best friend convinced me to look into CM and since then I’ve never looked back.

What I’m Excited For and Looking Forward to with CM: I am looking forward to helping grow the community of women in CM at UW. I am also excited that I’ll have a career that will lead to a job where I can apply what I’ve learned.

Clubs & Involvement: Wrestling (2015); University of Wyoming Police Department 

Why I Joined the CM Program and What it Means to Me: I was doing some remodel work on my house and I enjoyed seeing the outcome of the work that I put in. Dr. David Mukai mentioned the Construction Management Program to me and it sparked my interest. I looked into the program and saw an opportunity, in the long run, to better myself and my family. This is a program that has a career after the completion of the degree. This program has meant a lot to me because of the relationships I have built with the other students and instructors. Dr. Jacobs and the other instructors have a passion for the CM field which cultivates a fun learning environment with practical skills that we can use in the field. The way the program makes you interact with each other builds important leadership skills that will help us excel in the Construction Management field.

What I’m Excited For and Looking Forward to with CM: I am excited to see Construction Management Program grow and for my fellow students to make significant impacts across the country. I look forward to graduating with my second bachelor’s degree and using it to start a new career someday.

WYATT YENNEY | Taking Up Opportunities

Wyatt Yenney, one of 30 students to participate in the University of Wyoming’s first Construction Management program, is a Wyoming son, born and bred. He was born in Sheridan, WY, and later moved to Rock Springs, where he completed high school in 2018.

Highly motivated to stay in Wyoming, but unsure how to do that, because of the lack of training in the field he thought he would like to have.

Fortunately, during High School, he participated in Rock Springs High School’s Energy Resource Academy that offers real-life, hands-on training in a variety of fields. This is where he began his journey towards his construction interests, being fully encouraged by the Academy instructors to take up job shadowing opportunities.

His first internship was the result of a job shadowing opportunity at the Jim Bridger Power Plant owned by PacifiCorp. It was there that he met Charlie Barnum, who provided the mentoring he needed to keep going.

After graduating high school, he attended Western Wyoming College for his freshman year. As a result of his ongoing interest in construction management, he was able to spend his summer working in the field while earning money for school.
