CHEYENNE – Shayla Howell isn’t kidding when she says she grew up as far northeast as you can go in Wyoming.

Her hometown of Colony is only accessible by taking U.S. Highway 212 from either Montana or South Dakota. Howell’s schooling options were limited to home school or making a 25-mile trip to Belle Fourche, South Dakota.
