A scholarship has been established in memory of beloved Casper College accounting instructor Michael Sarvey.

The Michael H. Sarvey Accounting Scholarship is open to all Casper College accounting majors with a 2.0 or higher GPA, enrolled in six or more credit hours, and Wyoming residents. In addition, financial need will also be considered. The scholarship will be given out annually.

The scholarship was created by Sarvey’s wife, Sally. “Mike made a point to give equal encouragement to traditional and nontraditional students. He felt honored by the praise of his students who would happily share with him and members of his family the impact his class had made on their lives,” said Sally. Sarvey retired from Casper College in May 2000 after a 30-year teaching career.

During his teaching career, Sarvey received numerous awards, including The Rosenthal Outstanding Educator Award, the Casper College Alumni Commitment to Excellence Award, the CPA Society of Wyoming Outstanding Accounting Educator Award and the Small Business Administration Accountant Advocate of the Year. Sarvey sponsored several Casper College student groups and enjoyed playing intramurals and noon basketball while being an avid T-Bird booster.
