Mission
The Casper College Alumni Association promotes awareness and appreciation for Casper College, increases the ability to provide financial resources to Casper College and its greater community, improves connectivity with alumni and other stakeholders, and improves the Casper College campus environment.


Stay connected.

Click for detailsAll current students, past students, and friends are encouraged to notify the Casper College Alumni Association of their current address. We add new names and update addresses in order to get Casper College information to you. Email or call the Alumni Office and include your name, address, any information about yourself you would share, plus your years of attendance or graduation date.

The Casper College Alumni Association is a growing and vital part of the campus community. In 1989, the association was officially chartered and a constitution and bylaws was adopted. Currently, more than 20,000 names are on the college’s former student contact list. Twice each year, alumni receive an edition of Footprints, the alumni news magazine. The magazine is also available electronically via this website. Alumni have worked to establish an endowment fund for future projects and scholarships, and oversee several scholarships. Each year the annual Alumni and Friends banquet honors distinguished alumni and commitment to excellence recipients. In addition, the alumni board hosts an annual chili feed at Homecoming, hands out doughnuts on the first day of classes, sponsors a holiday reception for students and staff, and presents each graduate with a gift at commencement rehearsal. The Krampert Theatre Lobby was named the Alumni Lobby in recognition of a $100,000 gift from alumni and a plaque has been erected listing all donor names. Also, the alumni association played a significant role in the college’s 50th anniversary celebration spearheading the “Spirit of the Thunderbird” project, which resulted in the 15-foot tall Chris Navarro bronze on the front campus, which has become a symbol for the college.

CC Matteo Pistono to be Honored as 2014 Distinguished Alumnus
  Award Winner

The Casper College Alumni Association will honor the 2014 Distinguished Alumnus, Matteo Pistono, at its Autumn Gala on Saturday, October 4, 2014. Pistono is a writer, photographer, social justice campaigner, and the author of two books, “Fearless in Tibet: The Life of the Mystic Tertön Sogyal” and “In the Shadow of the Buddha: Secret Journeys, Sacred Histories, and Spiritual Discovery in Tibet.” Pistono’s images and writings about Tibetan and Himalayan cultural, political, and spiritual landscapes have appeared in The Washington Post, BBC’s In-Pictures, Men’s Journal, Kyoto Journal, and HIMAL South Asia.

Pistono was born and raised in Lander, Wyo. He earned an associate degree in international studies in 1991 at Casper College, and then attended the University of Wyoming, completing his undergraduate degree in anthropology. In 1997 he obtained his master’s degree in Indian philosophy from the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London. Pistono worked with the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. on Tibetan cultural programs, then lived and traveled throughout the Himalayas for a decade. He focused on China’s human rights abuses in Tibet, gathering accounts and photos of the Chinese suppression of the Tibetan people.

Pistono is also the founder and director of Nekorpa, a nonprofi t working to protect sacred pilgrimage sites around the world.
His other activities include serving on the Executive Council of the International Network of Engaged Buddhists, Rigpa Fellowship,
and the Conservancy for Tibetan Art and Culture. Pistono and his wife, Monica, divide their time between Wyoming, Washington,
D.C., and Asia. Pistono was the 2012 Casper College Commencement speaker and was nominated by Casper College for the 2012 American Association of Community Colleges “Outstanding Alumni” award. Casper College Distinguished Alumni are selected by the alumni board of directors for their extensive contributions to professional, philanthropic, or humanitarian work. The cover story of the Winter
2011 Footprints, “Pilgrimage and Politics: An Alum’s Spiritual Journey for Justice,” recounts Pistono’s path from Wyoming to Tibet. Find it on the Casper College website at caspercollege.edu/alumni.

CC Educator and CC Benefactors Recognized as 2014 Commitment to Excellence Recipients
 

The Casper College Alumni Association is recognizing three people with the Commitment to Excellence award in 2014 for their outstanding contributions to Casper College. This coveted award honors those who have given exemplary service to and have made a significant difference in the growth and development of Casper College.

Former Casper College District Board member and longtime Casper educator, William Hambrick will be recognized for a lifetime spent in education. Originally from Lone Star, Texas, he taught school at every level, from kindergarten through college. He was named Wyoming’s principal of the year in 1988. Hambrick served on the Casper College District Board of Trustees from 2000 to 2012 and was a key participant in the expansion of the Casper College campus to include the five newest buildings.

Casper couple, John and Jane Wold have supported education in Wyoming, in Casper, and across the country. They led the effort to build the Wold Physical Science Center in 1993. The Wolds established the Help Yourself Academy, an after-school enrichment program to teach science to elementary school students in partnership with Casper College and Natrona County School District No. 1. John Wold holds the distinction of being the first professional geologist to serve in the United States Congress and is currently the oldest living former Republican member of the United States House of Representatives.

   

Class of 2014 T-shirts Fund Scholarships
The Casper College Class of 2014 raised money for scholarships through the sale of commemorative Casper College Class of 2014 t-shirts. “If you contribute $10 or more to the 2014 class gift through the Casper College Alumni Association, your gift helps fund a scholarship supporting a student at Casper College next fall,” said Linda Nix, associate director of alumni relations. Casper College Student Senate President Bailey Jessee urged his classmates to support the effort to “give back and create opportunity for others.” The CC Alumni Association donates the shirts, so every penny goes toward funding scholarships. Last year the 2013 Class Gift T-shirt fundraiser generated enough money for two $850 scholarships. There are still some t-shirts left for a contribution of $10 or more, and you can get yours by contacting Linda Nix at 307-268-2218.

An annual fundraiser is held to enable the alumni association to provide assistance to future students and to support extra-curricular activities and college projects. In 2002 the alumni association board pledged $100,000 to the Krampert Theatre addition/renovation project. For this donation the new Krampert Theatre Lobby was named the Alumni Lobby and a plaque has been erected listing all donor names. The 2005-2009 fundraiser campaigns have focused on state matching funds set aside by the Wyoming . Many donations given during this period double in value and enable the colleges to remain strong in the future. We’ll put your dollars to work helping Casper College and its students.
Remember, it’s tax deductible!
