Students will learn more about the University of Wyoming, UW alumni will connect with their alma mater, and members of the public will find out more about UW’s presence in Weston County during a “UW in Your Community” gathering Tuesday, March 14, in Newcastle.
The public is invited to the event from 5-7 p.m. at the Newcastle Lodge and Convention Center. Free appetizers will be served, and a cash bar will be available.
UW President Ed Seidel will be in attendance and speak during a brief program, highlighting the university’s collaborative efforts with the state’s community colleges to prepare students for the modern economy and boost entrepreneurism and the state’s economy, among other topics.
UW Department of Economics faculty member Anne Alexander will discuss UW’s work with the city of Newcastle to perform an economic impact analysis of the community’s planned Heritage Park.
Also scheduled to speak are current UW students from Weston County: Newcastle High School graduate Dylan Drost and Upton High School graduate Ethan Mills.
Before the evening event, Seidel, a UW faculty member and the current UW students from Weston County are scheduled to speak to students during assemblies at Newcastle and Upton high schools.
The Weston County gathering is the fifth in a series of “UW in Your Community” gatherings planned around the state.
“This will be a great opportunity for community members to interact with President Seidel and others from UW, learn about exciting initiatives for students and the state, and see some of the collaborative work UW is doing with local partners,” says Chad Baldwin, UW’s associate vice president for marketing and communications. “UW alumni and everyone across Weston County are invited for what will be a fun evening.”
