WHEATLAND – Local resident Stacy Buchholz recently graduated from the celebrated Leadership Wyoming program as a member of the 40-person Class of 2021. Beginning in August of 2020 and concluding in early May of 2021, this program visited and explored seven different communities during their time together. Each month of the program included a three-day program focused on the issues of tourism, education, natural resources, healthcare, technology, manufacturing, government, economic development, cultural diversity, and community development.
Members of the Class of 2021 represented communities and sectors from across the state of Wyoming. Buchholz is a resident of Chugwater and works as the University of Wyoming 4-H youth development educator in Platte County.
Buchholz joins just shy of 900 Wyoming Leaders as an Alum of the 21-year program. Other notable graduates from the program include, Senator John Barrasso, Governor Matt Mead, US District Judge Nancy Freudenthal, as well as many CEOS, local government officials, and community leaders.
Executive Director of Leadership Wyoming Mandy Fabel states, “The individuals and who make up the Class of 2021 will forever hold a special place in the history of our program. They took a chance on signing up for an experience without knowing what it would look like or how their year would be impacted by health orders. Through it all they remained committed to each other and the program and we are exceptionally proud of this group. Expect big things from each of these leaders in your community and the state of Wyoming.”
