As the grand finale of Nevada State College’s yearlong anniversary celebration, the college held its 10th Anniversary Gala on Friday, Oct. 19. The event commemorated a decade of the college’s growth – from its key founders and supporters, to the achievements of its alumni, students and faculty. The event was held at the Green Valley Ranch Resort.
"Our students, faculty, staff and administration were proud to come together with our valued community to reflect upon the college’s growth over the last 10 years while also looking forward to the future," said NSC President Bart Patterson. "Over 500 guests joined us for the anniversary celebration."
Hosted by the Nevada State College Foundation, all proceeds will go toward student scholarships, daily operations and initiatives supporting both students and faculty.
