On July 29, the Laramie County Community College Ludden Library dedicated the Strickland Family Study Room. The room is a place where LCCC students, employees, members of the public, and their children can gather to study in family groups.

The study room was made possible through the generosity of Paula and Dale Strickland. Paula was an elementary educator for 33 years in the Laramie and Cheyenne school districts. Dale was a scientist and educator devoted to learning his entire career.

A dedication plaque noted “The Strickland Family values education and sees learning together as a family as a top priority for a new beginning on life, no matter what the age.” It concluded, “They both feel strongly that when families learn together, they grow together.”
