Mick and Susie McMurry announced the donation Tuesday of $500,000 for construction of a plaza and open space on the Casper College campus.
The plaza will be built this summer on the site of the Roberts Commons building, which will be demolished in May.
The McMurrys are making the donation to name the plaza after two major fundraisers for Casper College, John Jorgensen and George Bryce. The two have served more than 20 years each as officers and members of the Casper College Foundation.
When it opens for the fall semester, the plaza will feature landscaping, paths, seating and a fire pit. The road that currently passes through campus in front of the new Casper College-University of Wyoming building will be rerouted. Future plans for the plaza may include a fountain and an amphitheater.
