Hospital Foundation Announces Newly Appointed Director – J.T. Grainger


The Sheridan Memorial Hospital Foundation Staff and Board of Directors are pleased to announce J.T. Grainger as their newest Director, voted unanimously to the board during their September 2020 Board Meeting.

Board President Richard Garber shares, “we are thrilled to welcome J.T. to our Foundation Board of Directors. In my time spent with J.T., it is evident that he is a driven, philanthropic, outgoing individual who is going to bring great insight and energy to our board.” Along with the officers and directors, Foundation staff share in the excitement to welcome J.T. as part of the board. “J.T. is a passionate, motivated individual that is an outstanding addition to our well-rounded board,” explains Chief Development Officer Cody Sinclair. “J.T. shares his excitement and passion with individuals of all ages and wants to help develop this community positively for the generations to come. He has already shown initiative in learning more about Sheridan Memorial Hospital and the work of The Foundation and how he can make a strong impact.”

J.T. is a Wyoming native that understands the importance of rural healthcare, having grown up in the small town of Saratoga, Wyoming, eventually ending up in Sheridan two years ago. J.T. currently manages shipping operations for Vacutech LLC, operates a flight school at the Sheridan Airport, and is the Vice President of the Sheridan Pilot’s Association – a non-profit organization committed to improving access to flying for aviation enthusiasts of all ages. When his wheels are on the ground, J.T. spends time appreciating all that Wyoming has to offer. From hunting and fishing to golfing and volunteering, he finds plenty to keep him busy on the land and in the clouds. Beyond his new adventure with The Foundation, Mr. Grainger is involved in The Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce and local chapters of Lions Club, Experimental Aircraft Association, National Wild Turkey Federation, Mule Deer Foundation, and Elk Foundation.

With all the exciting projects and work The Foundation is doing, someone who likes to keep moving is a perfect fit for the board. The Foundation looks forward to the experience, energy, and perspective J.T. will bring to the board in the coming year and all we will accomplish for healthcare in our community – together.
