Congratulations to Big Piney High School Senior, Grace Tanner for being named the Outstanding Class 1A/2A recipient of the Bob Carey Memorial Award for the State of Wyoming for the 2017-18 school year! Tanner was chosen for this honor based on her leadership ability, scholarship, character, athletic ability and community involvement.

The award is named after teacher and coach, Bob Carey of Lander High School. Coach Carey was the only coach in the state to win both a girls’ and boys’ State Championship in basketball, and was instrumental in giving girls’ basketball recognition in Wyoming. He was a proponent of excellence and equality for all athletes.

Well done, Grace! You make us proud to be Punchers!
