CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Association of Community College Trustees is holding its first education summit in Cheyenne.

Officials say the summit on Tuesday is intended to start conversations about the next stage of education in the state and how to better prepare students for the future.

Topics include the role of Wyoming's community colleges in educating the future workforce as well as improving completion rates.

Speakers include Gov. Matt Mead. Panels include students and industry members.

The event was originally set for November but had to be rescheduled because of inclement weather.

Steve Bahmer is executive director of the Association of Community College Trustees.

He tells the Wyoming Tribune Eagle that a second summit is being planned for some time in the spring.
