To close out the semester, we present our top 10 most read stories of 2018. See you in the spring!
#1: College opens time capsule as part as 50th anniversary
To kick off the 50th anniversary celebration at LCCC, a time capsule from 1993 was opened on Friday, Sept. 21.
#2: Majoring in music is helping a student reach her goals
One of Laramie County Community College’s newest Golden Eagles for the 2018-19 academic year, Ingrid Taylor, made the decision to attend the college to give herself the opportunity to explore her future career options.
#3: Performer’s perspective: Why you should vote yes for LCCC mill levy
Ever since grade school I’ve been involved with the performing arts. My involvement spans from being in grade school choirs that sang “Deck the Halls” on a stage in a cafeteria and singing numbers from “Grease” in a high school auditorium, to singing a beautiful arrangement of “Amazing Grace” with a collegiate choral group on the stage of Carnegie Hall in New York City.
#4: Graduate takes on roll of commencement speaker
Members of the graduating class of 2018 will see their last day as Golden Eagles on May 12, but they will notice that for the first time at LCCC their commencement speaker will be a fellow student.
President Dr. Joe Schaffer and Student Government Association President Constance Woolhether will be speaking at graduation. This year’s commencement speaker, however, will be student Aidan McCown.
#5: Photo Gallery: Dean of BATS wins LCCC Best on Campus Livestock show
The Best on Campus Livestock Show took place Sept. 21 in the Arena on campus at LCCC.
#6: No, there’s not a war on men and no, most sexual assault reports aren’t false
It really sank in when I heard one of my close friends say, ‘Why? No one would believe me. It happened years ago.’
Hearing that come out of the mouth of a friend I’ve known for years punched me in the gut.
#7: It’s always a scary time for women
Tish Tower said, “We are the granddaughters of the witches that you could not burn,” an important quote that’s been circulating, but I recently saw a similar one, “We are the granddaughters of the women you kept silent.” It rings true to this moment in time and we aren’t going to keep silent anymore.
#8: Wingspan to host LCCC Board of Trustees election forum
Candidates for the Laramie County Community College Board of Trustees will have the opportunity to share their platforms and answer questions during a candidate forum hosted by Wingspan Student Media, the Cheyenne League of Women Voters and the Wyoming Tribune Eagle.
