As the grand finale of Nevada State College’s yearlong anniversary celebration, the college is holding its 10th Anniversary Gala on Friday, October 19, 2012. The event will commemorate a decade of the college’s growth from its key founders and supporters, to the achievements of its alumni, students and faculty.
The event will be held at the Green Valley Ranch Resort starting at 6:00 p.m.
Our students, faculty, staff, and administration are proud to be coming together with our valued community to reflect upon the college’s growth over the last ten years while also looking forward to the next, said NSC President Bart Patterson. Nearly 450 guests have confirmed their attendance at our celebration to-date.
