Why I am Running
Serving our students and the citizens of Natrona County is a privilege for which I am very grateful.
I want to continue my advocacy work for our students and Casper College on the local and state level.
These efforts focus on sharing the community college roll in developing workers for our state, securing appropriate funding for the college and our employees,
capital construction, developing scholarship opportunities for non-traditional students, and visiting with constituents about their ideas to continue to move the forward, as we adapt to challenges in our quickly changing environment.
Top 3 Priorities
My priorities are listed above. I will continue to stay informed about national, state and local issues that may impact Casper College and remain active in our state trustee association. The legislature allocates significant funding for the colleges and it is a continual focus of our advocacy efforts. Contacts will continue regarding the developmental needs of the college, and funds needed to to continue a culture of teaching excellency for our students. Casper College needs the most current materials, equipment and technology to engage and educate.
