October 10, 2017 Dear friends, Prior to his death in November 1917, Edward A. Whitney created a will to establish Whitney Benefits, the first educational foundation in Wyoming. Mr. Whitney spent thirty years planning this gift to the people of Sheridan County. The Foundation was established in 1927. In the years since the establishment of the Foundation the earnings from the trust have educated thousands of youth, heavily funded Sheridan College and the YMCA, built Whitney Commons Park and the Sheridan Ice Rink, and benefited the area and its people in many other ways. To commemorate 100 years since Mr. Whitney's death Whitney Benefits has partnered with the WYO Theater, Sheridan College, and the Sheridan College Foundation to celebrate 100 years since Mr. Whitney's death. In September, Sheridan College hosted Whitney Days at Sheridan College Campus and in various locations around Sheridan. Events included Wild West Wednesday featuring an Open House with music and food and a Full-Moon Hike, a comedian, Third Thursday booth, BBQ with games and photo booth, a rodeo, and volleyball matches. The events were well attended by both students, faculty, and community members. On Monday, November 14th at 5:30 pm Whitney Benefits, the WYO Theater, and Sheridan College Foundation are co-hosting a re-dedication of the North Wing of the WYO Performing Arts & Education Center, Hallmark Building / WYO Theater and on Thursday, November 17th at 7:00pm please join us at the Whitney Center for the Arts to enjoy the Whitney Center Jazz Orchestra. Warmest Regards, Jennifer Destefano Whitney Benefits Student Loan Administrator
