LAS VEGAS — The Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance (LVGEA) announced today that Clark County School District (CCSD) Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky has joined its board of directors, known as the LVGEA 50. Retiring in June, he will represent CCSD on the board while the search for the district’s new superintendent continues.
“I’m thrilled that CCSD has joined this committed group of business leaders that represent the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance board of directors,” said Skorkowsky. “The LVGEA has been a strong partner of the school district, focused on strategic initiatives aimed at developing the skills of our workforce and building a stronger, more diversified economy for our residents and families. I look forward to serving on the board and eventually helping the next superintendent transition into this important role in economic development.”
Skorkowsky has spent the last 27 years as an educator at CCSD. He has served as a teacher, assistant principal, principal, academic manager, deputy superintendent and now as superintendent.
“There is an inextricable link between economic development and education, and CCSD is an exciting addition for the LVGEA 50,” said LVGEA President and CEO Jonas Peterson. “Our efforts to build a stronger workforce begin with K-12 education. The addition of CCSD brings a wealth of experience and knowledge that will help us to better align our workforce with the jobs of tomorrow.”
The LVGEA 50 is the largest business board in Nevada, made up of an impressive group of public and private sector leaders dedicated to driving Southern Nevada’s community and economic development efforts, in order to strengthen the region, create new jobs and spur capital investment.
