Partner Spotlight


The Cody High School 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.

“Ours is a special class,” said class member Jerry Lanchbury.  “We believe in giving in whatever way we can.”

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.

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