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 Industry Maintenance 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.
A committee comprised of at least 3 people from Western Wyoming Community College and Ciner Wyoming will review application packets and select those to be interviewed. A primary recipient will be selected by May 1.
