LCCC Foundation will host panel discussion, “Career and Industry Growth in Cheyenne”

As part of the Union Pacific Business and Industry Series, the Laramie County Community College Foundation will present a special event addressing the business outlook in our area.

 “Career and Industry Grown in Cheyenne” takes place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 16 in LCCC’s Center for Conferences and Institutes, Room 129/130. The event is presented in conjunction with a month full of career-related activities at the college.

As Cheyenne and the region continue to experience strong business growth and new development, what does it mean for those of us living here? Panelists plan to share the impact these new industries have on our community, the services they provide, and the qualities they seek in future employees. The audience will have time to engage in a Q&A session with the panelists.

“We hope the community and our students discover how companies are planning for growth in Cheyenne and what opportunities there are for future employees and the community at large,” said Lisa Trimble, coordinator for this program.

Featured speakers on the panel include Courtney Williams, Dyno Nobel; Erin Williams, State of Wyoming; Christine Weber, EchoStar; Donna Kush, Union Pacific Railroad; Angela Burge, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center.  Brenda Foley of Montgomery Broadcasting will moderate the event.

Other activities during Career Week will take place on campus, including workshops provided by the LCCC Career Center and the Department of Workforce Services, including a Career Fair on April 22.
