A 15-year associate with the Sig Rogich Communications Group, she has followed the stadium development plan since its inception.
■ Former Urban Chamber of Commerce Executive Director E. Louis Overstreet, 75. An engineer with a doctorate, Overstreet served as board chairman of a Cleveland-based engineering company that had a piece of the construction management of the Cleveland Browns’ FirstEnergy Stadium and served on a bond advisory committee of the Clark County School District.
■ Jeffrey Silver, 70, a Las Vegas gaming attorney. He is a former Clark County chief deputy district attorney and former member of the state Gaming Control Board, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and the Las Vegas Events boards.
