Rock Springs Main Street/Urban Renewal Agency Honors Kaleb Cheney as March Volunteer of the Month

Last Updated 3/27/2024


The Rock Springs Main Street/Urban Renewal Agency (URA) is delighted to announce Kaleb Cheney as the March Volunteer of the Month.

Kaleb, currently a senior at Black Butte High School, has played a pivotal role in the preparations for the upcoming round of artwork in the Art Underground Gallery, taking the project lead as his Eagle Scout project. As a member of Troop 86 of the Crossroads of the West Council, Jim Bridger District, Kaleb collaborated with his fellow troop members to obtain all of the necessary materials and supplies for the installations from local businesses including Walmart, Home Depot, and Bloedorn Lumber.

Assuming the responsibility, Kaleb and his troop dedicated over 40 hours to the project, cutting and priming 22 new palettes in preparation for the artists' creations.

Following his graduation in May, Kaleb intends to embark on a two-year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Upon his return to Rock Springs following his mission, he hopes to pursue a career in firefighting.

"Kaleb Cheney embodies the spirit of volunteerism and community engagement that we cherish in Downtown Rock Springs," said Maria Mortensen, chairwoman of the Rock Springs Main Street/URA. "His initiative and drive serve as an inspiration. We are proud to honor Kaleb as our March Volunteer of the Month and extend our heartfelt gratitude for his invaluable contributions."
