LAS VEGAS – A year ago, their graduation was in doubt. Today, it is a certainty.
More than 700 Clark County School District (CCSD) students from 15 local high schools gathered inside the Marquee Ballroom at MGM Grand Friday to celebrate their own hard work and academic accomplishment. All are a part of the school district’s Reclaim Your Future Program, an initiative to provide adult mentors from the business community to offer support and guidance to high school seniors who are not on track to graduate at the outset of their senior year.
Reclaim Your Future Program partners students with volunteer adult mentors – including more than a few MGM Resorts employees – for monthly sessions throughout the school year. MGM Resorts has been a proud supporter of the program since its inception, inviting participants to attend organized job shadow events at various resorts and hosting an annual celebration breakfast for the participants and their families since 2012.
