Cheyenne, WY – In Cheyenne today, President Tom Buchanan said he was delighted by the gift and went on to thank the donors: Encana, Shell and the Cody-based company Nielson and Associates. He also says that, through a fund raising campaign, UW is able to match the donations. The money will go to research and teaching in the energy field. That's something Encana's Eric Marsh says will help industry and the nation. UW is conducting a search for a permanent director for the school and for the first four faculty members.
