Recently, members of the Cody High School Class of 1949 gathered for coffee, just as they have off and on for over 50 years.  Foundation Development Manager Carol Bell joined them to learn about their commitment to the students of Northwest College.  “Ours is a special class,” said class member Jerry Lanchbury.  “We believe in giving in whatever way we can.”

The CHS Class of ’49  Scholarship is a testament to the class’s dedication to giving and making a difference;  since its establishment in 1999,  the scholarship endowment has grown to $146,000.  Thanks to the generous ongoing donations of class members, 4 CHS graduates receive financial support at NWC each semester.  The CHS Class of ’49 Scholarship Endowment changes the lives of students, and continues to connect the classmates of the Class of ’49 through a shared purpose and love of giving.

Project Highlight


In Recruiting Today’s Students, HOME MATTERS.

There’s no way around it – Northwest College needs to renovate its old buildings to attract students.  Increased enrollment translates to increased revenue, and when local and state funding are in decline as they are now, enrollment revenue is more important than ever.

As part of our efforts to help the college build enrollment and continue productively transforming the lives of future students, NWC Foundation is launching a campaign to renovate the campus’s older buildings and ground.   Colter Hall, the colleges’ oldest residence hall, will benefit first.

Remaking Colter Hall is our first step in returning NWC’s campus to a leadership place on the campus living frontier.  Interested in helping?

Mark your Calendars to attend the Next Professor of the Month Series at Park County Library

Featured Professor: Micah Humphreys

When:  Saturday February 11th, 1:30-3:00

Where:  Park County Library


In the Big Horn Basin, we grow the barley for beer; why not the hops? This is the question NWC faculty member Micah Humphreys asked himself when he began thinking about starting a research project at NWC. It wasn’t long before he and his students began the work of trying to discover which hops varieties produce best in our area.

 Join Micah in February at the Park County Library to hear about the 2015 harvest and what he and his students are learning about growing hops for our climate.
