CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Signs for Seniors is a collaboration of local partners to celebrate LCSD1 senior classes of 2021. The project was a hit in 2020; this year, it is coming back.

“Signs for seniors is a project that we came up with last year when schools closed, the world shut down, and we just knew the class was going to miss out on all the traditions of a senior year. So we hung up light pole banners all around town, downtown, in town, in the school parking lots, to honor all the class of 2020 graduates and we are so excited because we are doing it again this year,” said Lorrell Walter, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Western Vista Credit.

Walter spearheaded the project in just thirty days last year, and rounded up partners to make it happen again this spring. The joint effort actually was recognized at a national level, receiving the Diamond Award from the Credit Union National Association.

Walter said if they can honor every single graduate, with parental consent, there will be around 900 banners around Cheyenne. She is hoping they can continue the tradition every year.

“We couldn’t do it without our partners so we partnered with the Downtown Development Authority, with Black Hills Energy and new this year, Remax Capitol Properties has joined us as well. This is a collaborative effort between the four organizations, and really, without one of them, we couldn’t do it. So we will see, but it would be nice to see it continue for years to come,” said Walter.
