LVA LEGACY PROJECT UPDATE
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.
