Begin your day in support of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming for our Awards & Recognition Breakfast to celebrate Trudi Holthouse

Trudi Holthouse works each day to extend the legacy of community and service left by her parents.  “My parents instilled the value of giving back to where you live and provided the resources to help me do that each day,” said Holthouse. 

Trudi was raised in Casper by Susie and Mick McMurry, inheriting their passion for the values reflected in the Code of the West. Trudi works with her husband, Tyler Holthouse, to keep those values strong in her four children and two grandchildren. After leaving Casper to attend school, she followed in her mother’s footsteps as a teacher, but was called back to her hometown by the opportunity to raise her family near her parents and in the community that means so much to her.

“Boys & Girls Club is vital to our community in providing all children a safe and meaningful place to belong,” Trudi adds.  Her favorite part of the Boys & Girls Club is WyoTowne.  “It is uniquely Wyoming and provides all the kids in the community an important perspective on belonging to a community,” said Holthouse. 

The connections that Trudi brings can be felt across Natrona County beyond her personal endeavors.  She enjoys bringing synergies to projects and people through enthusiasm and introductions.  “I have met a lot of wonderful people being involved in the McMurry Foundation and it is exciting when I can help facilitate collaboration in a new way,”
