When NWC alumnus Ron Weathermon ’91 contacted Foundation Executive Director Shelby Wetzel, he asked

how he could become more involved in the Foundation’s work and if it was possible to do so from Basel, Switzerland.


Ron’s generosity extends beyond his service on the board. What began with a gift to chemistry scholarships in 1995, a few years after he graduated, has since grown into a diverse giving history that has touched several areas of campus and positively impacted many science students’ lives.

The NWC Alumni Association's second annual Trapper Classic Car Show was a great success and even bigger than last year's event! Those who attended were able to view classic cars, enjoy food, and cap off NWC's 75th Anniversary. Prizes were awarded to the following individuals for three categories. 


  • Best Classic - 1963 Chevy Impala owned by Dick Eastman

  • Best of Show - 1966 Chevy Chevelle Super Sport owned by Scott & Angie Rickard

  • People's Choice - 1954 Chevy Pickup Truck owned by Denman Jones

Vibrancy: The Campaign for Northwest College celebrates our heritage and drives forward an imperative to transform our campus into an innovative, dynamic center for student learning and community vitality. We are moving forward to achieve a vibrancy in our buildings that matches the energy and drive of our students. We are putting their vision into practice. We are building a Student Center that enhances their out-of-classroom learning. This campaign intends to build a vibrant Student Center that will punctuate Northwest College’s sense of community and inclusion. The new Student Center will be a place of belonging – one that captures the Trapper spirit.
