The Whitney Benefits Foundation has donated a 3D printer and materials to Sheridan College to help in the local effort of creating personal protective equipment for healthcare workers.  According to a news release from Sheridan College, the Board of Directors for the Whitney Benefits Foundation decided to make the donation after they learned the college had been asked to partner with local entities to produce PPE, but were lacking enough printers and needed materials to meet the demand. The total gift is approximately $28,000.

Northern Wyoming Community College District President Dr. Walt Tribley said that this is another example of the Whitney Benefits Board helping the college and the community. Tribley added that they have faculty, staff, and at least one student, Taylor Wendtland, who have volunteered their time to this effort. There is a similar effort that is being spearheaded by Gillette College’s Area 59 in Campbell County.
