The Reg Christman Fire Science Support Fund, a support fund to help Casper College fire science students in need, has been established.

The fund was established in Christman’s memory thanks to generous donations from those who knew him. Christman was a Casper firefighter for 23 years and ended his career at the department as division chief training officer.

Proceeds from the fund will be used to assist fire science students in need, based on recommendations from the fire science department and approved by the Casper College Foundation office.

Students eligible for financial assistance are fire science majors in good standing, show promise in “becoming an awesome firefighter,” enrolled in a minimum of six credit hours, and have a minimum 2.0 GPA.

“Reginald Christman believed in every person’s potential. This fund has been set up in honor of Reg to encourage and support fire science students as they navigate their education at Casper College. Reg loved Casper, and he loved being a firefighter. He would be so happy to help the next generations of firefighters achieve their dreams as well,” said his children, Lisa Klein and David Christman.
