Sierra Vista Celebrates 20 Years
SIERRA VISTA – Wayland Baptist University celebrated 20 years of service with a ribbon cutting on Monday, Aug. 21.
Sierra Vista Mayor Rick Mueller participated in the ceremony, along with city council member and adjunct instructor Craig Mount, Cochise College representative, Dr. James Rotweiler, and Ft. Huachuca ESO Sharon Lewis. There was also a large contingent of the Chamber of Commerce, as well as students and faculty members.
“Wayland continues to make strides into the community through various community projects,” said Wayland Executive Director and Campus Dean Dr. Glenn Simmons.
Some of those services include various projects with the Boys and Girls Club. The Sierra Vista Campus also runs a back-to-school backpack program for students and helps out with the July 4th 5k run that raises money for the Disabled American Veterans fund.
Wayland Sierra Vista was established in 1997 on the Ft. Huachuca campus and opened a downtown location in 2003. The main campus is located in Landmark Plaza at 400 West Fry Boulevard. The campus still operates a teaching site on Ft. Huachuca and has expanded to include sites in Tucson and El Paso.
