Affiliate Takes New Name
The board of directors of Voices in Voting/Kids Voting Greater Las Vegas recently received Kids Voting USA Board approval for a slight name change. The southern Nevada affiliate requested permission that the words “Greater Las Vegas” be changed to “Southern Nevada” which would clearly designate the vast area of schools being served within the Clark County School District. This includes over 350 schools located throughout Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City, and Mesquite, as well as outlying regions within southern Nevada. It was determined that such a slight name change was actually necessary due to the fact that board members had often been questioned whether the southern Nevada organization dealt with teachers and students in schools located solely within Las Vegas city limits. Board members believe that this name change will aid in fund raising possibilities. Voices in Voting/Kids Voting Southern Nevada will continue to provide the Kids Voting curriculum to elementary and secondary teachers through an online one-credit course as well as student online voting opportunities for over 300,000 K-12 southern Nevada students during local and national elections.
