(Riverton, Wyo.) – Former Central Wyoming College President Dr. Jo Anne McFarland often said during her career that there would be “dancing in the streets” when she left the college. A street dance was actually planned to fulfill her prophecy, but Thursday afternoon’s deluge convinced planners to move the dance and picnic inside. Rustler Gym on campus was the venue for the college’s farewell to it’s 25 year-long president who had been at the college a total of 41 years, starting as an adjunct professor.
