Service for trustee to be held on campus
Former Laramie County Community College Trustee George W. McIlvaine, 76, died Oct. 3 at Davis Hospice Center after the sudden onset of a neuro-degenerative disease.
McIlvaine also volunteered with the LCCC Foundation. McIlvaine’s family funds a scholarship that has been awarded to more than 35 nursing students.
He was born July 21, 1939, in Gunnison, Colorado, to Charles and Ruth McIlvaine and in the seventh grade moved to Saratoga. In 1961 he graduated from the University of Wyoming with a bachelor’s in Business.
Upon graduation, he was commissioned an officer in the U.S. Army and served in Korea and Fort Carson, Colorado. He married Mary Gould, also of Saratoga, on Feb. 17, 1962. They enjoyed 53 years together and are parents of Mark and Anne Marie and the grandparents of Emily and Jordon.

'Portals to Kairos' connects students to art
Art galleries are ways artists can deliver creative interpretations and show the interesting ways they express themselves through their work but what Laramie County Community College’s Ed and Caren Murray Art Series will present in its up-and-coming art gallery series is an artist who wants to do more than that—she wants to show what her work can offer her audience.
Director of alumni affairs and event planning Lisa Trimble said, “We are very excited to have an individual of such high caliber visit LCCC.”
The nationally known artist, Natalia Wróbel, who the Murray family has chosen to present in their art series, will showcase her event titled “Portals to Kairos” in the Science Center Room 121 from Oct. 19–Nov. 23.
In the series, Wróbel portrays what the mind experiences in meditation, prayer and relaxed attentiveness by drawing from images of neural networks and capturing these imagined worlds suspended in time. Painting for Wróbel is a moving meditation and a way to ignite a mode of being and entering into Kairos, or the “time in between,” Wróbel said of the Greek word meaning “the supreme moment.”
Wróbel, a Polish-American, grew up in Warsaw, Poland, and La Jolla, California, and has lived most of her adult life in New England. In preschool she outlined her body in black ink, and since then, she has loved to use art as a way to visually depict an experience and spiritual expression.
“Sometimes a simple black line on paper can be the most satisfying expression.” Wróbel said of ink, a medium she’s used since age three.
