Derrel Carruth, (AA’65), one of the 25 new exemplary alumni.

The first classes held at the new Casper Community College began in September 1945. The 2020-2021 school year marks the college’s 75th year. The Casper College Foundation and Alumni Association celebrates that milestone with a special 75th Anniversary Gala to close out the year.

When Casper College celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1995, the alumni association named 50 graduates as exemplary alumni. The alumni association chose these 50 for their commitment to Casper College and their success following graduation. In the time between now and then, several of these exemplary alumni have been honored as distinguished alumni, the highest honor given to a Casper College graduate.

In that spirit, another 25 exemplary alumni have been named in celebration of the college’s successful last 25 years. These individuals were also chosen for their commitment to Casper College and their success they have achieved since graduation. With these additional 25, we now have 75 exemplary alumni representing this institution’s 75 successful years.
