LARAMIE — A former Green River High School graduate and a former Rock Springs High School student will be among 20 University of Wyoming’s College of Arts and Sciences students honored for its 2019 class of Outstanding Graduates.

John Richardson of Green River, and BriAnna Logan of Rock Springs will join their classmates graduating from U.W. this spring.

Since 1991, the college has annually recognized students ready to graduate who have achieved success inside and outside of the classroom during their academic careers. Honorees are nominated by one of the college’s 21 academic units and are recognized at a luncheon in May. At the luncheon, each is presented with a medallion to wear with his or her cap and gown at commencement.
