Partner Spotlight


Northwest College ’96 alumna Kara Beech, a Powell native who now lives in Rock Springs, has stepped up to the Presidential Partner giving level in 2017.  Kara knows the importance of pursuing a passion. Following her graduation from NWC with an associate degree in fine art, she worked in medical records at Powell Valley Healthcare. It was there human resources sparked her interest, so she went back to school and earned a bachelor’s in business administration and human resources.

“Make every moment count. We live in a really small world, and you never know when your path will cross with someone you once knew. Always be kind–even in the tough times.” Kara Beech 

Project Highlight


Champions in the classroom, competition and life.

The dream of playing college sports is a powerful motivator for young student athletes, many of whom are the first from their family to attend college.  Access to education opens additional doors for student athletes allowing them to become successful in life as well.

Our “Trapper Champions” Endowed Scholarship campaign aims to develop an ongoing revenue stream for athletic scholarships so coaches can be confident of having resources to maintain competitive programs.

Join us for a Mentoring Night.
We envision a “speed dating” format; each mentor will sit at a table and students will have 5-7 minutes to ask questions of you. A bell will ring, and Northwest College students will move on to the next mentor. We will provide sample questions for the students who don’t quite know where to begin. Whether you are retired or mid-career, please consider answering questions for young people. Even if you haven’t found your way to the perfect workplace, your experiences and thoughts have value.
