- About UW
Sprague enjoyed her time at the University of Wyoming so much, she has been working at UW since she graduated in 2005.
“My parents, siblings, aunts, uncles and many cousins went to or are going to UW,” Sprague says. “My dad was an offensive tackle for the football team 1969–72, my mom played volleyball here, and my twin first cousins played basketball for the Cowgirls in the early 1990s.” At first, Sprague wasn’t sure she wanted to come to the family university, but once she arrived, she knew it was a perfect fit. “My mom, three aunts, my sister, my cousin and myself were all in the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority on campus—it’s surreal to be in the same rooms that your mom or aunts lived in when they were here.”
Now the assistant director for institutional marketing, she is also manager of UW’s Pride Committee. “Its goal is to promote pride on campus, in our community and state, and nationwide,” Sprague says. If you’ve seen UW banners around campus or around town, that’s the work of the Pride Committee.
The committee also sends UW Pride items to Wyoming troops overseas, sponsors Pride Friday prizes on campus, helps with charity drives, participates in parades and more.
