Ciner Wyoming would like to congratulate Nathan Campos on being the chosen as the 2021-2022 Bigler Memorial Scholarship recipient.
About the Bigler Memorial Scholarship
In 2005, the Bigler family and OCI Chemical, predecessor to Ciner Resources, partnered to establish a scholarship to honor Terry A. Bigler and carry on his legacy. The scholarship is intended to help students enrolled at WWCC who are entering their second year of a degree program. The scholarship is need- based with preference given to students enrolled in either Mine Maintenance or Trades & Industry programs as well as those having graduated from a high school in southwest Wyoming. Terry is remembered by his family, friends, and coworkers as a loyal, compassionate, humorous, and professional man. He had a strong mechanical ability and was recognized for his passion by his peers.
Terry worked at the Big Island Mine & Refinery safely for 28 years as a member of the maintenance team. When speaking of Terry amongst fellow employees, it is always with a smile and fond memories. Terry’s parents, Ken and Carol Bigler, actively participate in the selection process each year and hold the candidates to a high standard so as to properly honor their beloved son. Since its inception, the scholarship has provided over $30,200 to students at WWCC to provide financial assistance to help meet their academic goals.
This Year’s Winner
The Bigler family and Ciner are proud to announce Nathan Campos as the 2021-2022 Terry A. Bigler Scholarship recipient. He is the sixteenth recipient and will receive $2,600.00 to apply toward his academic expenses. Nathan expects to graduate in the Spring of 2022 with an Associates Degree in Electrical Instrumentation. He is the son of Nathan and Mandi Campos of Green River, WY. In his spare time, Nathan enjoys taking care of horses, building things in his garage, and hanging out with his friends.
With continued hard work and dedication, the Bigler family and Ciner are confident Nathan will have a successful future and that he is the perfect candidate to receive the scholarship this year.
Best of luck to Nathan as he continues his education at WWCC this Fall!
