College credit may be obtained by registering for the Jackson Hole Community Band through Central Wyoming College (CWC). This “course” is offered both fall and spring semesters each year. This is a great way for high school and college students to earn extra credits towards college. Also, college graduates may earn additional continuing education credits. For further information, contact the CWC Teton Campus at 307-733-7425. Normal office hours are 10am – 5pm.
