Up until now. VEGAS INC’s “40 Under 40” event, at which we recognized 40 young Las Vegans who have been contributing not only in their company professions but in their community and social ventures to the betterment of Southern Nevada, was this past week. (I advise getting a copy of Las Vegas Weekly for complete information about these up-and-coming Las Vegans).
If you pair the “40 Under 40” with the hundreds and thousands of chronologically diverse Las Vegans who have actually come together on short notification to rally for Len Jessup and UNLV and versus some members of the Board of Regents who would have had Len gone, then you need to conclude that Southern Nevada is starting to pull together in the ideal direction.
Which is a factor for celebration in a community that for a lot of the past Ten Years have had little to commemorate.
I remember a time when you could not discover 40 young Las Vegans, let alone the kind who can influence numerous others in business, social and civic community. Today, we are just like a lot of our much older cousins throughout the country because we have a committed cadre of vibrant locals who are taking it upon themselves to develop a city where individuals in my generation could have just imagined living.
Las Vegans, young and old, came together around the public airing of exactly what ought to have been some personal grumbling by a few members of the Board of Regents. For whatever factors, some aren’t delighted with Jessup’s successful leadership of Las Vegas’ growing university.
Time will tell if Chancellor Thom Reilly’s effort to move all occupational discussion to a future date will provide Jessup the time and space he has to continue down the successful road he is paving towards UNLV’s future. I hope President Jessup utilizes the time he has to move UNLV forward in such a fashion that this city will look back on this episode as simply another of our unfortunate however essential growing discomforts.
That ball is in Len’s court, as he is hearing some siren calls from others who recognize his considerable abilities even while some individuals in Nevada do not.
I mention this unpleasantness not to rework a few dark days but to shed light on the brilliant future I see for Southern Nevada.
When I went to the 40 Under 40 awards occasion at Red Rock Resort this past Thursday night, UNLV was among the many subjects being talked about among those who are moving and shocking our company neighborhood. I was heartened to speak with numerous of these folks who were both acutely familiar with what was going on and nervous to weigh in on possible services.
Of course, UNLV was simply one subject. There was plenty being discussed– all around a typical theme: how lucky we all are to live in Las Vegas at this time and how we can each play an outsized function in making the future occur quicker, better and with less bumps along the way.
In the past, such conversations might have been around a kitchen table– and a small one at that. Today, in 2018, there are hundreds of individuals all around our city having comparable conversations and developing myriad concepts, solutions and action plans to make everything occur.
Which, my pals, is the type of development that will make Las Vegas’ future so much brighter for many individuals.
Yes, it is a good day. And this is simply the beginning.
