Trustees of the Northern Wyoming Community College District have accepted a total of just over 31 acres of land that will increase Sheridan College campus acreage by nearly one-third and provide support for the college's vocational technology programs.

Action came during the trustees' meeting Wednesday night and included accepting five acres of land from the Sheridan Economic and Educational Development Authority, also known as SEEDA.

Dr. Paul Young, who's president of the college district and of the SEEDA Joint Powers Board, said SEEDA received the land from Seven Pillars Resources LLC earlier this week in exchange for the one-acre site of the Early Childhood Education Center.

Trustees also accepted a donation of just over 26 acres of land on Solutions Way from Seven Pillars.

That land includes two buildings, one of which is 25,000 square feet and is proposed to house the college's construction technology program.

In a third motion, trustees accepted a gift from Whitney Benefits of property on Brooks Street, where the college currently holds construction technology classes. Young said the Brooks Street property will be given to The Hub on Smith Street.

In other action Wednesday, college district trustees appointed new College District President Walter Tribley to finish Dr. Young's unexpired term on the SEEDA Joint Powers Board. Young announced his resignation earlier this year, and his last day with the college district will be July 15.

Trustees also appointed new board members to the Center for a Vital Community and the Sheridan College Foundation.
