Remembering Sen. Hank Coe

Wyoming Department of Education > Superintendent's Update > Remembering Sen. Hank Coe

We said goodbye to a friend, a leader, and a colleague last week. Senator Hank Coe, or, “Mr. Chairman” to many of us, passed this week after a brief battle with cancer. This is a true loss. Senator Coe led the Senate Education Committee for many years. He approached every topic with a wealth of wisdom and thoughtfulness. Senator Coe’s legacy and impact on education will last for generations to come.


Senator Coe, Representative Freeman, and Representative Roscoe escort me into the House Chambers at the beginning of the 2019 legislative session.
