College president Glick dies, governor responds

CARSON CITY – University of Nevada, Reno President Milt Glick died Saturday, apparently from a sudden stroke.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports Glick was dining with his wife, Peggy, when the incident occurred.

Gov. Brian Sandoval released the following statement Sunday morning: "President Glick was passionate about education and brought a steady, experienced hand to the leadership of Nevada's oldest institution of higher learning. During his tenure at UNR, Milt oversaw not only a successful building campaign but the recruitment of record numbers of National Merit Scholars and the development of important new accountability measures. Kathleen and I extend our thoughts and prayers to Milt’s wife, Peggy, the Glick family, Milt's colleagues at UNR and the greater UNR family."
