  • Where Are They Now? Will Wernick

    Vicky Dorvee|Apr 3, 2024

    As a teenager, Will Wernick didn't have one particular interest, wasn't a great student, and was late applying to college. Initially, he didn't get into CU Boulder, so after graduating from Niwot High School in 2001, he commuted to CU Denver for classes. But, he confesses, he wasn't in the right mindset. He said he did "horribly" and probably shouldn't have gone to college right away. He continued with his education though, taking evening classes in political science at CU Boulder, which he thor...

  • A song for Bert Steele and the community

    Vicky Dorvee|Mar 6, 2024
