First Bank, a Division of Glacier Bank, in Rock Springs recently made a $50,000.00 donation to the WWC Foundation. The First Bank Endowment, set-up to help low to moderate income students, is an appreciated addition to the Foundation.
“We were thrilled to receive this donation from First Bank,” said David Tate, Director of Community Relations at Western Wyoming Community College. “First Bank has shown numerous times, its commitment to the community. This donation just furthers that commitment.”

We’re very pleased that this endowment has been set-up to provide assistance to students who may not otherwise be able to afford the costs of higher education. We constantly strive to seek positive ways to impact our community, and we’re especially excited about this partnership with WWCC.”
