Qwest Awards $3,000 To The Wyoming Latina Youth Conference


The Qwest Foundation today announced an award of $3,000 to the Wyoming Latina Youth Conference (WLYC). The conference - presented by a committee of community volunteers in partnership with the Laramie County Community College - will be held at the Laramie County Community College Conferences and Events Center October 12-14.

The WLYC strives to meet the challenge of ensuring that young people in Wyoming are provided with information to assist them in developing insightful, positive choices to the everyday issues confronting them. The programs included in the WLYC cover important issues, from dealing with depression and the importance of graduating from high school, to the use of alcohol, tobacco and illegal drugs.

We are pleased to participate in this years WLYC, said Mike Ceballos, Qwests president for Wyoming. Qwest is committed to the safety of Wyoming youth and preparing them for successful futures.

Qwest has been an avid supporter of our annual conference, and, because of that, we are able to provide the power of choice to at-risk Wyoming youths, said Ann Esquibel Redman, WYLC chairperson.

The conference registration fee is $15 and includes the Friday night banquet, the conference workshops and Saturday concert. Scholarship assistance is available for students who need help with the registration fee.
