CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The journalism department at the University of Wyoming is in a tight spot, but a few members of the Wyoming Press Association stepped up to help fund a couple of courses.

The Wyoming Tribune-Eagle (http://bit.ly/2vfbfM8 ) reported Monday that Robb Hicks, publisher of the Buffalo Bulletin, and Toby Bonner, general manager of the Powell Tribune, jointly paid for the multimedia messaging course. Bonner says it cost $1,750 from each newspaper's budget.

Bob Kennedy, owner of the Cody Enterprise, says he diverted the Bruce M. Kennedy Scholarship to help fund the journalism department. Kennedy says that is worth approximately $1,000-$2,000.

The department, which had six full-time faculty members two years ago, is down to just two.
