LVA LEGACY PROJECT UPDATE

HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT!! Congratulations to LVHSAA Vice President Bruce Langson (class of 1965) who has spearheaded a project to preserve our old LVHS campus on 7th and Bridger. Bruce, along with alumni Senator Richard Bryan (1955) and Bob Stoldal (1961) have been working diligently on this project for the last few years.  Bruce announced at the 2019 Wildcat Reunion that the Clark County School District had recognized a need for $15 million worth of renovation and upgrading to our campus. This came about from a $46,000 architectural study the LVHSAA commissioned with a firm out of Washington DC known for this type of work. The $46,000 came from the Las Vegas Centennial Commission after Rollie Gibbs (LVHSAA President, class of 1954) and Bruce requested the study to verify the value of our buildings and campus. Bruce, Senator Bryan and Bob recently met with Dr. Linda Young (CCSD Trustee) and other CCSD employees and learned that the CCSD Bond Oversight Committee approved the $15 million for the improvements, and added an additional $4 million for emergency repairs. The emergency repairs are currently underway and the $15 million of work starts in May. The pressure we all have been putting on the CCSD board members, which resulted in their support, has brought this about. Bravo for our campus, and of course our alumni! Our buildings will need much more work to move them into their second hundred years of useful life and the continuation of wonderful traditions we enjoy. Bruce says that as he has strolled around the campus and chatted with the current LV Academy students, he is often “cornered' by them to answer questions about his school experience and growing up during that time. In every case, the current students of the Academy show a strong connection to our buildings and, even though their traditions may be different than ours, they love being on our campus and are joyful to be learning at our old campus, even with the small bathrooms and all of the inconveniences they endure each day. They love our campus and want to use and maintain our buildings. The campus has strong support from the current students and us. It does not seem possible, but the Las Vegas Academy has been occupying our campus for over 26 years! They love our school and want to maintain it.

Just a reminder - -

LVHS MEMORABILIA DISPLAY
The Las Vegas High School Alumni Association donated a beautiful display cabinet to the Las Vegas Academy. This cabinet is in the lobby of the main building at 7th and Bridger and houses LHVS memorabilia. The Academy welcomes visitors to stop by to see the memorabilia any time. The display is changed every few months.
We plan to display memorabilia from classes having significant reunions in any given year. If any of you have something you would like to display (you can either donate or loan to us - we will take good care of it and get it back to you if you wish), such as class rings, previous group photos on the steps, letter jackets or sweaters - or anything that will bring back memories from your years at LVHS - please let me know. It would be appreciated if you would reach out to your classmates also for anything they would like to contribute to the display.
You can give me a call at 702-876-6660 or let me know via email lvowl@aol.com
Thanks!!
Patty
