Gillette College Dedicates New Technology Center

The Northern Wyoming Community College District has been providing classes in Gillette for over three decades. First, as the Sheridan College – Gillette Campus, and now as Gillette College. For most of that time technology courses such as diesel mechanics and welding were taught in whatever space was available. Starting next semester those courses will have a new home in the Technological Education Center on campus at Gillette College. Executive Dean Paul Young says it’s been over three years since the project first began.

The main purpose of the college is not to graduate students but to prepare them for entering their own careers and giving them the tools to succeed.

Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal spoke at the dedication ceremony last night. The facility will house diesel technology courses, mining technology courses, and even has a high voltage lab for industrial electricity courses. The Center will be ready for classes in just over a month when the spring semester starts.
