The College of Southern Nevada Foundation conducted one of the most significant fund raisers of the year in Nevada higher education, the 2012 Legacy of Achievement Gala, on Saturday, May 12, at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.
More than 500 guests and over a dozen community partners, including NV Energy and Caesars Entertainment, supported the event to raise more than $300,000 for CSN scholarships and programs.
The CSN Foundation organizes the gala each year to raise funds and honor community leaders. The Legacy of Achievement program was initiated in 2007 and the annual gala has raised almost $2 million for student scholarships and programs at the state’s largest and most diverse higher education institution.
This year, the Foundation honored Henderson Municipal Court Judge Diana D. Hampton, Western Zone President for American Residential Services Kenneth D. Goodrich, CSN Fine Arts Department Chair Richard McGee, Ph.D., and Sunbelt Communications Executive Vice President of News Robert “Bob” Stoldal.
Recipients, who will have an endowed scholarship at CSN in each of their names, were selected by trustees based on the overall and lasting impact of their contributions locally, statewide and nationally.
