Strengthening Education In Wyoming
Strengthening Education Reporting is a reporting initiative that focuses on critical problems and successes in Wyoming ‘s education system.
Wyoming Public Media received a Corporation for Public Broadcasting grant to strengthen education reporting in Wyoming as part of the national American Graduate: Let’s Make It Happen program. This long term national public media commitment, supported by the CPB, assists public broadcasting stations in reporting on a wide array of education issues that impact on graduation rates in their communities.
Building a strong education culture in communities starts with public awareness and involvement. Public radio reaches thousands of listeners, and can play a significant role in building awareness and focusing public attention on issues that shape education in Wyoming.
WPM’s long term goal to make this position a permanent part of the network’s reporting team. WPM is looking for support from individuals and entities who have a passion for education, and who want to make a difference in Wyoming’s future.
Support comes from:
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and from these Wyoming Foundations:
- Homer A. and Mildred S. Scott Foundation
- John P. Ellbogen Foundation
- B.F and Rose H. Perkins Foundation
- Seidler Foundation / Sam and Carol Mavrakis
- Joe and Arlene Watt Foundation
