CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Central Wyoming College is looking forward to the first week of May to see their first graduates to ever receive Bachelors degrees from the school. Central Wyoming College is one of the first community colleges in the state to offer a Bachelors in Applied Science. The degree was originally for those in a more technical field but has since grown to include those in early childhood development courses.

The college saw that a degree like this was necessary to help not only keep skilled workers in Riverton, but to also help those who may not be able to move achieve a dream of earning a Bachelors degree.

“As you know there’s a teacher shortage and, for our part, we have place bound mom and dads who want to become elementary school or pre-K teachers and they can now do that locally. Where as before they couldn’t pack up their bags and go somewhere else to study.”
