Student Success Stories
Uinta B.O.C.E.S. #1
Scott Mueller entered the youth program at Uinta B.O.C.E.S in January 2018 after leaving the K-12 system without enough credits to graduate. Scott was a bright young man and was an excellent student. After identifying career goals, Scott realized he wanted to become a welder. After completing his HSEC in April 2018, he enrolled in the welding program at Western and continues to study with the intent of completing the entire program. While undertaking his studies at Western, Scott became gainfully employed as a full-time welder for Union Tank Car Company. We are very proud of Scott and all his accomplishments!
Eastern Wyoming College
Viktoria Peterson immigrated to the United States in 2014 and enrolled in the AE program in Sundance, WY where she studied English as a Second Language. In her Ukrainian homeland, Viktoria was a licensed massage therapist and continues to practice this art in Sundance. Despite her talents in massage therapy, Viktoria’s real passion has long been in drawing and illustrating children’s books. After improving her English language skills, this passion began to morph into real talent when she wrote, illustrated, and published her first children’s book entitled “Lisa and the Bears”. She has since published several other books! In 2018, Viktoria applied for her U.S. citizenship and so a challenging road of civics education then commenced with her AE instructor at EWC. Viktoria dedicated herself to these studies and her efforts were rewarded when she passed her citizenship examination in August 2018. Her “Oath of Citizenship” ceremony was held in early 2019. We are very proud of her!
