High school students in the University of Wyoming Summer High School Institute raised money to donate to the downtown fire relief fund program.

Gifted students from across the state worked together to set up a series of car wash stations around Laramie on June 18. This resulted in over $600 to donate for businesses affected by the downtown fire on May 24. This includes businesses that underwent water and smoke damage. The check will be presented to the Laramie Main Street Alliance on Saturday, June 28 at 10:30 a.m. at Crane Hill Hall on campus

The fire on May 24 destroyed the Laramie Vision Clinic, which will be reopening in a new location, and damaged several other businesses, some of which just reopened last weekend.

The Summer High School Institute is a program for intellectually talented high school sophomores to gather a share ideas. It provides students with the opportunity to visit the University of Wyoming campus and find answers to questions they may have.
