Last year the governor set up the Economically Needed Diversity Options for Wyoming Council, better known as ENDOW.
After a few months of touring the state and meetings, ENDOW has developed a list of recommendations to start setting the stage for diversifying the economy. Greg Hill is the Chairman of Endow and he tells Bob Beck why ENDOW is different from past economic development efforts.
Wyoming Governor Matt Mead signed two executive orders Friday that address recommendations recommended by his ENDOW Council.
The first one asks state education officials to develop a plan where 67 percent of Wyoming’s working age population would hold a post-secondary degree or certificate by 2025, and for 82 percent to achieve that by 2040.
