A Score Big Night with CWI and Idaho Steelheads

Published: December 16, 2022

Idaho Steelheads celebrated a huge win over the Rapid City Rush on Wednesday, Dec. 14, while College of Western Idaho (CWI) scored big too! CWI student, Lillian Black, received a $500 scholarship during a CWI Night — the first of four CWI feature nights at the Idaho Steelheads!

More than 100 group sales tickets were sold for the CWI section where the College’s Enrollment team spoke with a number of future and current students as they signed up for a chance at the SCORE Big scholarship or a new CWI hockey jersey. President Gordon Jones kicked off the game with the puck drop with Advanced Mechatronics Engineering Technology graduates and Micron Technical Advisory Committee members joining him on the ice.

The night continued with Blue sporting a CWI backpack and pennant, Zamboni rides, and an on-ice check presentation. With the CWI logo visible throughout the arena — the spirit of CWI was everywhere!  

  Lillian Black, a first-year Criminal Justice student, was over the top excited about winning the scholarship. She shared, "Every bit of assistance is so appreciated. My mom is looking at needing back surgery, and when I called her, she could not believe it! My grandparents were especially excited for me! I can't wait to send them photos from the night".  

The CWI hockey jersey giveaway was a popular attraction, too. The CWI Bookstore is fully stocked with jerseys, offering a great selection of sizes and a special discount of 25% off.   

 The next CWI night will take place Feb. 8, followed by two more nights Feb. 22 and March 15. Visit CWI Nights to purchase group tickets and for more information. Keep in mind, $5 from every group ticket goes to support student scholarships!
