The Archive Committee is comprised of retired Clark County School District educators who are dedicated to collecting, cataloging, and preserving information and materials that are pertinent to the history of the CCSD. The Archive Committee has worked diligently to create a permanent collection of fifty years of documents, maps, photography, and other memorabilia, as well as establish a foundation for future generations of educators to continue to archive artifacts and record our history. In addition, the 50th Anniversary Committee purchased display cases that are located in the lobby of the CCSD Administration building on West Sahara, where the Archive Committee will be able to showcase new information and items that contributed to the history of the district.
Jonathan Peters, holds a doctorate in American Studies. Peters is just as comfortable traversing the sparsely populated desert of Southern Nevada as he was talking with tourists on the Las Vegas Strip. This farranging curiosity is an apt trait for a man who works as both a writer and adjunct professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He is also the author of Springs in the Desert: A Kids’s History of Las Vegas.
