  • BJ Stokes

    President

    I am a native to Evanston and have lived here most of my  life. I attended college at WWCC, Laramie County Community College and the University of Wyoming. I studied nursing, Spanish and received a Bachelors degree in psychology. Upon graduation I returned to Evanston to work in my family business at Westar Printing LLC and Rocky Mtn Sign. I have served as a treasurer for the Laramie County Community College Board of Directors, as  treasurer for the Laramie Head Start Board of Directors, vice president for the Evanston Chamber Board of Directors, and I am currently serving as the President of the Evanston Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. When I am not working I enjoy time at the lake, camping, riding atv's and spending time with my wife and children. I love Evanston. It is a great place to live, to work and  to raise a family. I feel that if we all work together we can not only help Evanston grow but  thrive!"
