Literacy is the foundation upon which all other learning relies,” says Kris Engelstad McGarry, of the Engelstad Family Foundation.
“That is why we are proud to fund The Public Education Foundation’s literacy initiatives."
We all remember that teacher who changed our lives — who made us reimagine what’s possible. Those teachers are critical to the education of our children,” says Tony Sanchez, Senior Vice President of Government and Community Strategy at NV Energy. “So, what can we do to keep them teaching? That’s what we’re trying to accomplish through the Teacher Leader Academy.
“We invest in the Executive Leadership Academy with the belief that the right leadership in schools can be a game-changer for teachers, students and families,” says Michael J. Brown, President of Barrick USA. “We know just how valuable strong leadership is in the private sector and believe the same emphasis on leadership should be made in our public schools.”
“The Caesars Foundation is proud to give to The Public Education Foundation’s Teacher EXCHANGE,” says Jan Jones Blackhurst, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors for The Public Education Foundation and Executive Vice President of Government Relations & Corporate Responsibility for Caesars Entertainment Corporation. “It is critical that teachers have the resources they need to teach and students have the resources they need to learn.”
THE ARTS MATTER
Award-winning author C.A. Hartnell sees the opportunity to invest in the arts as a way to further cultivate the creative energy of Las Vegas. “The arts have the power to inspire each of us to achieve our highest potential,” Hartnell says. “As an author whose life’s passion is the act of creation, I absolutely love giving back to young artists so that they may perform, create and inspire, too.”
