Kim and Jody Brown Family Foundation donates to WWC Foundation to start agricultural program

WWC Foundation President John Hay, Kim Brown, and Director of Community Relations David Tate.

The Kim and Jody Brown Family Foundation has donated to the WWC Foundation to help start an agricultural program at Western Wyoming Community College. Kim Brown, a resident of Farson, Wyoming, began working with Western to start an agricultural program when he realized that Western is the only community college in the state that does not have such a program.

"There are many ranches in this part of the state and I believe that Western should be able to have an agricultural program so students from Southwest Wyoming can choose to stay close to home and not have to travel to one of the other community colleges," Brown said. 

Western has begun talks with the University of Wyoming to see if a partnership can be worked out between the Agricultural College of UW and Western. Funds donated by the Kim and Jody Brown Family Foundation will go towards the setup, hiring of faculty, and purchase of equipment for the program.

The Kim and Jody Brown Family Foundation is a private foundation located in Wyoming.  Its primary focus is to support Southwest Wyoming's citizens and communities but does, on occasion, donate to organizations outside of the region. The Brown Family Foundation's areas of interest are human services, direct healthcare, and education.
