The 14th Annual Las Vegas Multicultural Education Conference sponsored by the Las Vegas Alliance of Black School Educators was held March 6, 7, and 8, 1997, at Jackie Gaughn's Plaza Hotel. More than 200 teachers and administrators from the Clark County School District and across the state of Nevada along with many professors and pre-service teachers from UNLV were in attendance. Opportunities to learn about effective teaching strategies, to view the latest videos, to see artwork created by Clark County School District students, and to enjoy a variety of cultural events were abundant. Keynote addresses were made by Dr. David Whitehorse (Director, Professional Programs, Teacher Education, California State University at San Marcos), Mr. Charles E. Pace (Chautauqua Public Humanities School and Doctoral Student, University of Kentucky), Mr. Jim Kubik (Nebraska Teacher of the Year and President of the Nebraska State Chapter of NAME), Dr. Sue Fawn Chung (Professor, University of Nevada, Las Vegas), and Dr. Alba Ortiz (Professor, University of Texas at Austin). Presentations were led by many Clark County School District teachers and administrators including Dr. tinda Young and Ms. Karla McComb. Members of the COE Multicultural and Diversity Committee conducting sessions included: Dr. Nancy Gallavan, Dr. Cyndi Giorgis, Dr. Maria Ramirez, and Dr. Porter Troutman, Jr. This three-day event was an overwhelming success!
