Open House Planned for New Commons

Vice President Cheryl Heath announced the date during a presentation to Northern Wyoming Community College District trustees on Wednesday.

Sheridan College President Dr. Paul Young said construction is winding down at the college for the first time since 2012. But he added the lull will only be temporary. A new phase of construction is due to start next spring.

The president said the college is now more than $60 million into a total $90 million building plan. He elaborated on what that means for the college.

He added he thinks the college district has the best construction management team in the state.

Vice President Heath, who is also the chief financial officer, said the Thorne-Rider Campus Center will be finished by the time classes start. A portion of the Whitney Mall will be finished by early September, but part of it will remain unfinished for now, Heath said.

She added the Griffith Memorial Building is scheduled for rededication on Sept. 12. Also nearly completion are Phase 1 of the new Tech Center, and the large-animal science center being built on Sheridan's north side.

The college district will resume building next spring, with the Whitney Arts Wing and Mars ag center and science facility in Sheridan, and an education and activities center on the Gillette campus.
