Nevada State College, the second fastest growing college in the nation, hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for its new 65,000-square-foot Glenn and Ande Christenson School of Education Building on January 22, 2020.
Governor Steve Sisolak, Nevada State College President Bart Patterson and building namesakes Glenn and Ande Christenson were in attendance, along with other notable community dignitaries.
Governor Sisolak, who approved $55.9 million for the construction of the school, spoke about the positive impact the new building will have on the teacher shortage in the valley. Nevada State College President Bart Patterson thanked Glenn and Ande Christenson for their $5 million contribution to the building – one of the largest in school’s history.
The Glenn and Ande Christenson School of Education will be completed in time for the Fall 2021 semester.
