After 14 years at the helm of Powell Middle School, Jason Sleep will soon step into a new role: assistant superintendent.

So far, the first couple months of 2018 have brought an unwelcome mixture of fire and ice to Powell.

Many Wyomingites care deeply about our state’s natural beauty and rugged terrain. But we’re not just concerned about our state’s clean air, pure water, rural lifestyle, natural resources and wild landscape for ourselves — we care about the animals that roam our mountains, fly across this air and swim through local rivers.
