Thank you to the students, alumni, family, and friends of the College of Western Idaho (CWI) community who joined us at the arena for a night of hockey and fundraising during CWI Night at the Idaho Steelheads Feb. 28. The evening began with a ceremonial puck drop by alumnus, Miguel Ramirez, and his wife Edna. Ramirez graduated in 2017 from CWI’s Automotive Technology program and is now working at Lyle Pearson Acura in Boise.

As VIP guests in the CWI suite, Ramirez and his wife were joined by Automotive Technology faculty and representatives from Nagel Foundation, one of the College’s scholarship donors. Guests had a great time connecting with CWI leadership and staff as well as representatives and board members from the CWI Foundation.

Congratulations to CWI students, Casandra Sanchez and Jeremy Wright, winners of $1,000 SCORE Big Scholarships awarded during the game. Sanchez is currently studying Biology and plans to transfer to Boise State University to study Public Health. Wright, a small business owner and Studio Art major, also has plans to transfer to Boise State.

“Thank you to the CWI foundation for giving me the opportunity to continue my education,” said Sanchez. “This scholarship was a great way to start my 2020 year.”

Group ticket sales for the event raised a record $925! The funds, presented to the CWI Foundation by Steelheads Senior Account Executive, Steven Anderson, will go directly back to the SCORE Big Scholarship fund.

Join us July 9 for CWI Night at the Boise Hawks – stay tuned for more information!
