Northern WY Community Colleges Get Grant

Gillette, WY – The National Science Foundation has awarded a three-year, 850,000 dollar grant to community colleges in Gillette and Sheridan.

The money will go to providing education for advanced technicians in the energy sector.

Another focus of the grant is to look to the future of the state's energy workers. As part of the grant, a pilot summer camp project will be created for fifth- through ninth-graders to introduce them to the energy industry through education and hands-on activities.
