Women of the Las Vegas Business Academy making a difference
LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) —
With it being Women's History Month, it's important to highlight the powerful women in our community.
Loni Gray and Mackenzie Warren who are part of the Las Vegas Business Academy are joining us this afternoon to discuss the different programs and scholarships they offer right here in Las Vegas.
Founded in 2011, the Las Vegas Business Academy is a nonprofit organization with the goal to make a difference in the local community through the education of young professionals.
The most promising students are offered up to $75,000 in scholarship funding to earn graduate degrees from UNLV and help pursue their dreams without the financial burden.
So far the LVBA has seen three students graduate and go on to work for companies that they desire. The program currently has six students, and one more set to begin in August.
The LVBA has several women who work for top Las Vegas companies on the board of directors, including Fiji Water, Wyndham Consumer Finance, The Bellagio, and more.
