Where are they now? A look back at Summit Award winners

Kelly Lieb

After graduating from Sheridan High School in 2000, Kelly (Engels) Lieb, PA-C attended the University of Wyoming for her undergraduate degree and went on to complete her Master of Physician Assistant Studies at Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana, in 2006. She started her professional career working for an internal medicine practice at Tucson Medical Center in Arizona and later, hired on as a Physician Assistant at Campbell County Memorial Hospital in Gillette.

In 2013, Lieb spearheaded the start-up of Urgent Care services at Sheridan Memorial Hospital, where she is currently practicing and providing oversight as the department’s coordinator.   

The decision to return to Wyoming in 2010 was easy having had previous ties to the state. Lieb and her husband, Jacob Lieb, MD, a Riverton native and emergency medicine physician at the hospital, love the area and are avid skiers and hunters. The couple enjoys being a part of Sheridan’s tight-knit community and serving patients.

While at Sheridan High School (class of 2007), Scott Pettit was the state runner-up in pole volt and holds the school record at SHS for pole volt.  Pettit graduated from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, with a BS in civil engineering with an emphasis in structures in 2011.  While at Washington University, Pettit was a four-year varsity letter winner in track and field, two time conference champion, four-time all-University Athletic Association (conference) team, two time team captain and part of five UAA championship teams.

After graduation in May of 2011 he spent one year as an Intern-in-Service at the Catholic Student Center at Washington University. Following the year of service Pettit joined Larson Engineering as a design engineer working primarily in curtainwall design and structural design. He is still working at Larson Engineering two years later.

Outside of work, he helps as an assistant coach at Washington University with the track and field team.

He spends his free time cycling and competing in triathlons and hiking with his dog, Lillian.
