The Wyoming Council for Women’s Issues recognized Casper resident Bev Dye with its annual Woman of Distinction Award Saturday [August 18] at the Casper Petroleum Club.

As a former single parent with firsthand knowledge of the issues facing women today and an appreciation of her own education and her parents’  encouragement and work ethic, Dye has devoted 28 years to making a difference for others through Casper College’s ABE/GED Center. She is passionate about the program and sharing the renewed dreams of adults with previous mixed success in the educational system and makes every effort to put them on the right path.

In 2010-11, her program served 889 students, including 441 women, of whom 174 were single mothers. Her efforts include adding workforce representatives to new student orientation, facilitating community outreach programs,  creating GED programs at both Natrona County Detention Centers, serving on the Wyoming Family Literacy Advisory Board and securing funding for that program through a Wyoming Governor’s Grant.

Dye is the recipient of numerous awards, including from the U.S. Secretary of Education, U.S. Department of Labor and Employment Administration, Literacy Volunteers of America, Wyoming Community College Commission,  Wyoming Department of Workforce Services and more.
