25-Year Travel Commission Honored

Coon

Recently retired media manager for the Wyoming Office of Tourism Chuck Coon became this year’s recipient of the annual “BIG WYO” award.  Coon held that position for nearly 25 years. Coon retired in December of 2012. Former Tourism Director Gene Bryan originally hired Coon and referred to him Tuesday night as “the epitome of my definition of the perfect public relations professional.” In accepting the award, Coon modestly questioned whether he deserved it.  Coon told those attending the banquet, “When I look at the beacons of our business who have received this recognition, I am not certain that I measure up. I did what I was hired to do by the state and took great pleasure in performing those tasks to the best of my ability.”

  • Find some new places to fish - April 16, 2014
    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
