Whitney Days Honors Legacy

Sheridan College's Whitney Days honors the legacy of Edward A. Whitney and what he did for access to higher education and education in general.

That's according to Dr. Walt Tribley, president of the Northern Wyoming Community College District of which Sheridan College is a part.

Whitney Days started Wednesday morning with cupcakes and coffee in the Whitney Atrium and Thorne-Rider Campus Center, and continues Thursday with a special Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce coffee with Dr. Tribley in the atrium starting at 7 a.m.

Also Thursday, starting at 11 a.m., people can come to the Griffith Dining Commons in the Thorne-Rider Campus Center for lunch featuring different ethnic foods from across the globe.

From 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., people can pan for sapphires outside the Thorne-Rider center, and Sheridan College will have an information booth during Third Thursday in downtown Sheridan.

On Friday, men's soccer starts at 1 p.m., followed by women's soccer at 3:30 p.m. Both are in Maier Field. Rodeo starts at 6 p.m. at the Agripark. The action returns to Sheridan College at 9 p.m. with a hypnotist show in Kinnison Hall at Whitney Center for the Arts.

Dr. Leah Barrett, who's a vice president for the college district, said Saturday will be the big day, with a block party, women's and men's soccer, another rodeo performance and a barn dance at the farrier science barn.

The block party starts at 11:30 a.m. in the Golden Dome parking lot.

On Sunday, cowboy church at 8 a.m. and more rodeo at 10 a.m. are both at the college's Agripark.
