Kari's Access Awards Helps Four (4) Students with Expenses

Kari’s Access Awards Benefits from T-shirt Partnership

 Kari’s Access Awards, a local non-profit that assists students with opportunities for personal development through non-traditional scholarships, was the beneficiary of the proceeds from a WY Cowboys t-shirt sale. The shirt was made in collaboration with WyoRadio, a local network of radio stations, and Western Wyoming Beverages. They have been sold at Marty’s Gastro Pub on Elk Street.

“Thank you to these local businesses for contributing to Kari’s Access Awards which will provide additional non-traditional scholarships to our local students.”                                                                                                             - Larry Fusselman, Founder



Kari’s Access Awards is an endowment fund started in 2006 in memory of Kari (Kay) Fusselman who was a student at Westridge Elementary, White Mountain Junior High, and Rock Springs High School. The fund gives School District #1 students access to non-traditional scholarships. These scholarships allow students to participate in outside programs enhancing learning and personal growth beyond their daily school activities.


Founder, Larry Fusselman says, "Kari's Access Awards opens new opportunities to students; bringing out the best in each student one child at a time."

Quiznos with Santa at Westridge School

 "Quiznos with Santa" was offered on the silent auction at Kari's Access Awards Barbeque in August at Marty's!
Thanks to Westridge Elementary teachers, Caroline Pierpoint (1st grade) & Amber Johnson (4th grade), their students were "the winners" as Santa visited their classrooms on Dec. 8!
As the students waited their turn, Amelia King had a chance to visit with Santa!

"Jaws were dropping school wide as Santa walked through the halls of
Westridge Elementary generously carrying Quiznos lunch for students. Some
fourth and first grades had a jolly good time eating with Old Saint Nick
and expressing their Christmas wishes. What a wonderful opportunity that
we are so grateful for!"
