Virgin Valley Elementary School honored local groups and businesses Wednesday night during their annual open house. Principal Cathy Davis explained how important community involvement in Mesquite helps our local schools meet financial needs during the school year.

First she presented an award to Gerri Chasko representing the Eureka Casino Resort for their contribution of $21,000 to kick off a fund raiser for the ‘Mesquite Reads’ program. The resort challenged other businesses to match their contribution. She then thanked and presented an award to Sun City development residents for opening their pockets to help the school reach their goals.

Davis then asked Mesquite Police Department representative Michael Van Houten to step forward to receive an award for establishing and coordinating a new ‘Drop off Pick up’ area near the school’s facility. She then thanked the City of Mesquite for the use of the land, Precision Aggregates for materials, Las Vegas Paving and Kokopelli Landscaping for finishing the project.
