Heather Wofford selected as 2021 Gillette College distinguished alumna.

Gillette College Alumni Association is pleased to announce that Heather Wofford has been selected as this year’s Distinguished Alumna. Wofford received her Associate of Applied Science degree in Nursing in 2012 and an Associate of Science degree in General Studies in 2015, both from Gillette College.

Wofford continued her education, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing.  In 2020, Wofford completed a Master of Science degree in Nursing Education from Western Governors University.

“We are so proud to honor Heather as our distinguished alumnus,” said Heidi Gross, Gillette College Foundation Executive Director. “Not only has she dedicated her career to helping others, I am pleased that she has made the decision to join our College and help educate future nurses.”

Wofford worked for nine years at Campbell County Health. Her nursing career began in long-term care and on a medical-surgical unit, but the majority of her experience has been spent as a perioperative nurse. Throughout her career, she has enjoyed mentoring and teaching new nurses, which led her back to Gillette College as a full-time Nursing instructor in 2021.

Along with her new career as a college educator, Heather keeps busy being Mom to six year-old son, Holden, and four year-old daughter, Molly.

Wofford will be honored at Gillette College Commencement Ceremony, on Friday, April 30, at 7 p.m. at the GC Pronghorn Center. The Distinguished Alum award is sponsored by the Gillette College Foundation. For more information about the Foundation, contact Heidi Gross at (307) 681-6400.
