Two LCCC nominees win WACCT awards
Six members of the Laramie County Community College family were nominated to receive annual leadership awards from the Wyoming Association of Community College Trustees, and two won.
Winners, Billie Addleman and Lisa Trimble, were announced at the annual WACCT legislative reception Jan. 29.
Addleman was nominated as LCCC’s Foundation volunteer of the year. Addleman served as a Foundation trustee for four years. Lisa Murphy, vice president of institutional advancement, described Addleman as “a pillar of the community.” Addleman is not only involved with LCCC but also with various committees and associations in Wyoming such as the Wyoming Bar Association, the University of Wyoming College of Law Advisory Committee and serves on the board of directors of the Friends of Cheyenne Botanic Garden Foundation—just to name a few. He has also established two scholarships at LCCC.
Trimble was nominated as LCCC’s professional staff member of the year, an award that can be handed out to any full-time professional staff member. Trimble is the director of alumni affairs and event planning for the LCCC Foundation and currently serves on the LCCC Cultural Committee where she helps to bring cultural events to the campus. She has served on the Employee Giving Campaign Committee and is also a member of the Cheyenne Kiwanis Club.

historic railroad route
Let yourself get sidetracked from the daily grind and chugg-along at the Laramie County Community College’s Esther and John Clay Fine Arts Gallery. You may just blow your stack over an exhibit that defines taking something old and making it new. The exhibit called “Contemporary Views Along the First Continental Railroad” will be on display in the Fine Arts Building through Feb. 20.
On his website, the artist Richard Koenig said, “I want my photographs to contextualize the historic route…to give the viewer as strong of a connection as possible to this 19th century engineering marvel through the remaining visual evidence of the human-altered landscape.”
The railroad photographs show off these extraordinary landscapes from city to desert and how this man-made project changed them. The artist will have a reception at noon on Thursday, Feb. 12.
Artist teaches college photography
Koenig teaches photography and art at Kalamazoo College, Michigan. He earned his bachelor of fine arts degree from the Pratt Institute and received his Master of Fine Arts from Indiana University. He took advantage of two styles of photography: a panoramic style showing more of the landscape and then a single-frame with a more direct perspective. One of the driving forces of this multiyear project was his interest in the history of photography; on top of that he was always drawn to 19th century Western landscape photos.
