Shoshoni Masons presented annual awards last week; several others recognized

    (Shoshoni, WY) – The Wind River Lodge #25 and Shoshoni Masonic Club held their annual awards banquet on Wednesday, May 22. This event honored Shoshoni High School students, Gottsche, a fellow mason, a community member, and 2024 Shrine Bowl players.

    The first honor of the evening went to Noah Holloway, who named the painting donated by George and Regina Williams of Casper. The painting was donated at last year’s banquet, and Shoshoni High Schoolers were given the chance to name the painting for a monetary prize. Noah named the painting “The Last of its Kind.”

    The nonprofit Gottsche Therapy Rehabilitation and Wellness received a donation Wednesday evening. They opened a clinic in Shoshoni four years ago. Giving the check on behalf of the Masons was Joel Highsmith and accepting the check was Gottsche CEO Cheryl Shero and Senior Physical Therapist Susan Abbott.


    The four 2024 John Coulthard Citizenship Awards for Student Citizen of the Year were presented to Cammie Cornell, Wyatt Eadus, Abigail Jennings, and Ethan Tarango. Each student received a $300 check along with a plaque.

    This award’s recipients are selected by their peers, school staff, and faculty. It is not an academic award but is given to those who are helpful, friendly, and embody the qualities of a good citizen and student.

    New this year was a selection for Mason of the Year. This year, that honor went to Craig Roberts.

    The E. Gayle Currah 2024 Shoshoni Citizen of the Year award was presented to Michael Letsch.


    The Shriners joined the banquet to recognize the Fremont County football players who will be participating in the 51st annual Wyoming Shrine Bowl All-Star Football game. Cooper Frederick, Ty Sheets, Darrick DeVries, Wyatt Trembly, and Nick McIntosh are playing from Fremont County on the North team. Wyatt and Nick were unable to attend the banquet.
