Casey Childs, a 1997 graduate of Northwest College, will speak at the ceremony at 10:30 a.m. in the Cabre Gym in Powell. Born in Powell and raised in Lovell, Childs attended Northwest College, where his passion for art was ignited 20 years ago. After earning his associate degree in art from NWC, he went on to complete his bachelor’s at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.
His artwork has been featured in numerous exhibitions throughout the country in Texas, Washington, D.C., Georgia, Utah, Virginia, Wyoming and many more. Among Childs’ many honors, he’s most recently earned the Oil Painters of America Board of Directors’ Award of Excellence, and first place drawing and second place painting for the Portrait Society of America International Portrait Competition. Additionally, he was recently commissioned by the University of Wyoming to create a portrait of former U.S. Senator Alan Simpson of Cody.
