Jackson Student Achieves a First

A Jackson college student has earned a place in University of Wyoming history: becoming one of the two first UW students to receive bachelor’s degrees in energy resource science offered by the School of Energy Resources. In addition to significant energy research and outreach, the School of Energy Resource’s mission includes creating a nationally competitive academic program to give UW students the tools to solve significant energy challenges. Nearly four dozen students are now enrolled, and a master’s degree program is now in development. Kyle McDonald entered the program after transferring to UW from the University of Montana to take advantage of Wyoming’s Hathaway Scholarship program. He decided energy resource science seemed like a good fit since the degree’s focus was broad enough for him to discover an interest in water quality, while challenging him to think creatively in upper level science courses. McDonald says he plans to pursue more education in the area of water quality, starting work on his master’s degree next semester.

    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife. And even offer suggestions to the Game and Fish Commission when we think there are better ways to ensure that […]

  • Wish list season is upon us again - October 17, 2014
    Late October is a bad time of year for me. If I were independently wealthy, it wouldn’t be so bad. But I’m not. I’m a journalist, so it’s a little painful. It’s rough because this is when the Christmas catalogs start hitting the mailbox, and they’re chock-full of gear I wish I had. From the […]
