WyoTech unveils Hall of Fame program

Jan. 25, 2023
WyoTech's new program seeks to both celebrate the achievements of their graduates and encourage alumni support of the current student body.

WyoTech, a U.S. automotive, diesel, and collision trade school,  aims to honor its accomplished graduates and their achievements and contributions to the industry through its inaugural Hall of Fame program. The vocational school is currently accepting nominations through March 1, 2023.

"WyoTech has a rich history of graduates that have impacted not only the automotive industry but the lives of millions of people,” said WyoTech President Jim Mathis. “We at WyoTech are thrilled to be able to recognize WyoTech graduates from all over the nation this June for their accomplishments and success.”

The first Hall of Fame class will be recognized at WyoTech’s campus in Laramie, Wyoming, on June 2-3, 2023, along with the school’s annual car show. Those who can be nominated may hail from a range of professions, including business owners, industry innovators, and successful technicians, all of whom must display a dedication to excellence and their craft.

Nominations for prospective entrants, whether someone is nominating themselves or another, are due March 1, 2023, and can be submitted at WyoTech’s website. The form requires nominators to provide contact information for themselves as well as their nominee, along with the graduation year, campus location, and current business location, website, and social media of their nominee. Finally, the process requires a short statement examining the nominee’s success in the industry, including what notable projects they’ve worked on, how WyoTech supported them, and why they qualify for entry.

As far as technical requirements go, nominees must be a graduate of any WyoTech campus and be well-established in their career with at least five years of work post-graduation.

Once all the nominations are collected by the beginning of March, the names of the first six inductees will be announced in April. Along with receiving recognition, those chosen will be required to contribute to their alma mater in one of three ways:

  • Volunteering as a WyoTech graduation speaker.
  • Volunteering as a guest teacher for a lesson or workshop for current students.
  • Volunteering as a guest teacher for a lesson or workshop for WyoTech's Summer Seminar.
