Nevada State Apartment Association Selects the Education Alliance of Washoe County as their Charity of the Year
For the third year in a row, the Nevada State Apartment Association (NVSAA), a not-for-profit organization providing the Nevada multi-housing industry with legislative support, education and
community outreach, selected the Education Alliance of Washoe County as its chosen charity. NVSAA presented the Education Alliance with a check for $3,173 from silent auction proceeds at their fifth annual Jewel Awards.
“We believe in the work of the Education Alliance,” said Danett Michelini, NVSAA board member. “Supporting students leads to a thriving workforce.”
“The Education Alliance is a special organization,” said Susy Breckon, NVSAA Executive Director. “Their efforts support not only 65,000+ students in Washoe County, but also all Washoe County School District schools and educators.”
The Education Alliance of Washoe County is a nonprofit organization that supports Washoe County School District students and educators and collaborates with higher education to help students along their path to college and career readiness through their Partners in Education program, the Run for Education, Principal for a Day, the P-16 Advocacy Council, and the Teachers’ Warehouse.
NVSAA has more than 400 members statewide representing high-demand trade industries in Nevada, and recognizes their tradesmen with opportunities for them to shine at events like Maintenance Mania. Marvin Morgan, a Service Manager at the Vintage at South Meadows apartment complex recently placed as a finalist and will compete nationally in San Diego on June 15. Highlighting skills-based workers is an opportunity to illuminate the trade industry as an attractive career path for Washoe County students.
“I am honored NVSAA selected the Education Alliance as their charity again,” said Kendall Inskip, Education Alliance Executive Director. “Their support allows us to positively impact even more students.”
