Gillette, Wyo., December 10, 2013 – Jaime Basham of Campbell County High School in Gillette, Wyo., was named a Peabody Energy Leader in Education for the 2013-14 school year, and awarded $1,000 for her dedication and commitment to students.
As a Spanish teacher, Jaime wants her students to show what they can do with the language to their community, administrators and parents. She encourages her students to use Spanish as much as possible in class, and as a result, enrollment in the school’s foreign language program has increased dramatically. Jaime hopes that under her instruction, her students travel and explore and learn about new cultures. Outside the classroom, Jaime is also the president-elect of the Wyoming Foreign Language Teachers’ Association and a member of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages and the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society.Last Updated on Tuesday, 10 December 2013 12:30 Read more: Gillette Educator Named Peabody Energy Leader in Education

Law enforcement officers have many duties to the public. Many of those duties do not garner the attention of others when not accompanied by flashing lights.
Recently, Gillette Police Officer Zach Parker was on one of those routine calls when he saw an opportunity to go above and beyond for the community. Parker was actually in the process of issuing a citation for a pet running at-large when he noticed the homeowner receiving the citation was in need of some assistance and kindness.Last Updated on Thursday, 05 December 2013 06:26 Read more: Gillette Police Officer Helps Out Local Family
