2019 Nevada State College Holiday Message


[Music] Welcome to the fabulous Ethel M Chocolates
Cactus Garden. And I’m here with the newly-formed Nevada
State Musical Ensemble who will be performing for you for the very first time in public
in just a moment. You know, this is a magical place and Nevada
State College has had a magical year; the second-fasted growing college in the country,
we welcomed our first graduate students on campus with a master’s in speech pathology,
and we’ve started construction on new residential facilities that will be ready in the fall. It was also a magical year at the Legislature. We have two new buildings that the Legislature
approved for construction. A new education building at Nevada State College
and a health sciences building that we will share with the College of Southern Nevada
at its Henderson campus. And we couldn’t have done that without all
of our great community and donor support. We will have two new major buildings that
have been recognized. First, the Glenn and Ande Christenson School
of Education Building, which we will break ground on in January, and the renamed Nursing, Science and Education
Building which is now the Bob and Alison Kasner Academic Building. What a great thrill to have such great community
partners and great support. And finally, I want to give a shout out to
our faculty and staff. They do such tremendous work with this great
student population. We love you all. We appreciate all of your support. Have a great holiday and great new year. City sidewalks, busy sidewalks dressed in
holiday style In the air there’s a feeling of Christmas
Children laughing, people passing, meeting smile after smile
And on every street corner you’ll hear Silver bells, silver bells,
It’s Christmas time in the city Ring-a-ling, hear them ring
Soon it will be Christmas day Strings of streetlights even stop lights blink
a bright red and green As the shoppers rush home with their treasures
Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch, this is Santa’s big scene
And above all this bustle you’ll hear Silver bells, silver bells,
It’s Christmas time in the city Ring-a-ling, hear them ring
Soon it will be Christmas day Happy holidays! Be bold. Be great. Be State!
