Fast forward to today.
The council is aggressively moving forward with developing the five-year and 10-year educational master plan to reach the state’s educational attainment goals.

The public sessions’ focus is to gain crucial perspectives from stakeholders (aka local residents like you and me) to identify the barriers residents face to access and complete higher education certificates and degrees. The open forum discussions will seek perspectives from attendees for specific strategies to create a college-going culture from K12 to working adults.

Central Wyoming College’s session will take place at the Student Center Building (no. 9 on map) between 6-7:30pm on Thursday, November 29.
