Andrea Pfeil of Moorcroft is the fifth Crook County student to be awarded Strata’s Community Energy Scholarship. This scholarship provides eligible recipients with $2,000 per academic year for up to four years of academic study geared toward careers in the mineral industry and related fields. Andrea achieved both her high school diploma from Moorcroft High and her Associate’s Degree from Eastery Wyoming College in May of 2018, and she will pursue a dual major in engineering and mathematics at Gillette College in the fall. She is active as a community volunteer with a local daycare, the Moorcroft Library, her church youth group, and Gillette’s Rock Pile Museum. Andrea is a licensed Emergency Medical Responder and has been a member of the Moorcroft Volunteer Ambulance Service since 2014.

Strata will award the Community Energy scholarship to one new recipient per year, ramping up to an ongoing commitment to help up to four students at any given time in realizing academic success.

Grace Belize Anderson of Devil’s Tower has been selected as the second recipient of Strata’s new Opportunity Scholarship, a $500 award for general education and trade programs. She will be studying political science and communications at Liberty University this fall. Grace Belize graduated from Wyoming Virtual Academy with a 4.07 GPA – the first graduating student to have completed all 12 years of her education via virtual school.  She served as the National President for Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) for the 2017-2018 academic year and is active in service to her community.
