Nurses Gala a success at CWC

(Riverton, WY) – A Nurses Gala was a great way to wrap up the semester for the nursing students at Central Wyoming College. It provided an opportunity for all current nursing students to connect with local healthcare agencies, generate scholarship money for nursing students and celebrate the nursing program and class of 2023.

The gala organizers, Myriah Deckard, Rhonda Whelan and Emily Torres, started putting the evening together in December. As nursing students themselves, they spent as much time as possible with the details of the event while also balancing their studies.

The nursing students spent the evening serving food and attending to those who came to the event, while also mingling and networking with healthcare agencies such as SageWest, Riverton Medical District and Hot Springs Health.


The evening also included a presentation from CWC Nursing Director Stacey Stanek, who presented data on just how successful the CWC Nursing Program is compared to statewide and national numbers.

The 39th annual Pinning Ceremony will take place on Thursday, May 11.
