Thank you Leta Tanner

Thank you Leta Tanner

Gillette College and Gillette College Foundation would like to take a moment to honor Leta Tanner. Leta has been a long time resident of Gillette and Campbell County and has been fortunate to witness the positive growth of not only Gillette but also Gillette College. Leta served on the Gillette College Foundation Board and the Advisory Board for many years and was recently named a Board Member Emeritus. Leta’s footprint will forever be placed at Gillette College through her tireless service and generosity. When the need for housing became apparent at Gillette College, Tanner Village was constructed and was named after the benefactor, Leta Tanner. Leta will be leaving the Gillette area in May to be closer to family. Thank you Leta for all you have done to support our community and Gillette College.

This was originally posted on our Facebook page and the comments from community members thanking Leta for her support and vision is truly inspiring! Leta you will be missed in our community and we will be forever grateful for all you have done for the county, city and Gillette College.
