Commitment to Excellence

Janet de Vries: 2023

Born and raised in Ohio, Janet de Vries (1995-2016) first discovered Wyoming on a Girl Scout camping trip in 1972. “That’s when I fell in love with Wyoming and decided I would move here when I grew up,” she said.

De Vries earned her bachelor’s in geology from the University of Akron, Ohio. She then went to Utah State University for her master’s in geology.

“Coincidentally, my bachelor’s geology field camp was based at Casper College. When that course finished, I stayed, worked in the oil field for one year, earned my master’s in geology at Utah State University, and returned to Casper for my first professional job,” de Vries recalled. Read More
