The Clark County School District created the Pledge of Achievement for parents and non-parents alike to commit to supporting a higher level of achievement in schools. The pledge promises commitment to actively engaging in the issues; taking action and as a parent or business person; and being involved in key programs and initiatives.

He earned his bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Oklahoma State University and his master’s degree in education administration from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He has served as an elementary school assistant principal at Eisenberg, Kahre and Bracken elementary schools and as principal at French Elementary School and White Middle School, and he was chosen to open Del Web Middle School.

The Clark County School District is the fifth-largest school district in the country with more than 311,000 students and 357 schools.

The sponsor for the event is Inspirada.
