WWCC to Host Community-Wide Scavenger Hunt

Western Wyoming Community College will launch a community-wide scavenger hunt to kick off their Secret Summer Announcement. The hunt will begin June 9thand run through July 13th, 2018.

Western’s trusty mascot, Thunder, has a secret. To figure out his secret and Western’s Summer Announcement, follow the clues to find a Western Rock. Hints will be posted on the new Thunder Twitter account, Instagram, and on the new Western Connections Facebook page, every Saturday at 7 AM.


Scavenger hunters will have one week to find the Western Rock and post a photo of themselves with the rock in its hiding spot on the Western Connections Facebook page, or tag Thunder in their Twitter photo. The person who finds the rock, and posts on social media first, is the winner. Winners will receive a free movie ticket at the reception desk on the Rock Springs campus.

David Tate, Director of Community Relations at Western said, “The Community Relations Office hopes people get involved with Western’s Scavenger Hunt this summer.  We think this will be a fun activity for the entire family and we hope it ties Western closer to the communities it serves.  Good luck to all our participants.  We hope you enjoy scavenging through Rock Springs and Green River!”
