I consider it a privilege to serve the many students, faculty and staff who are working hard to improve our campuses and produce elite graduates,” Del Carlo said. “Nevada is growing and we’re facing new demands and challenges. We must put in place the necessary educational programs for the industries moving to the Silver State and that will
continue to be a priority for me in my next term.”
