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.
