Wyoming Cowboy Challenge Academy shuts for now due to staff shortage (update 1)
CHEYENNE – A type of military academy in Guernsey that's affiliated with the government is drastically scaling back operations, according to a stakeholder and an announcement from the Wyoming Military Department.
The latter cited a shortage of staff, something employers throughout the state and country have been facing. The Wyoming National Guard has also warned of such issues, including in testimony at the state Capitol.
According to a two-page news release emailed Wednesday evening after the Wyoming Tribune Eagle's inquiries, the Wyoming Cowboy Challenge Academy "will shut down for an indefinite amount of time based on the inability to recruit and retain staff." The release said "shutdown procedures are underway" and indicated the organization has operated for almost 20 years.
