Lunch and Learn

Please join us for a delicious luncheon on Thursday, August 24th at Estiatorio Milos inside the Cosmopolitan. This educational meeting will be featuring UNLV Athletic Director, Desiree Reed-Francois, speaking about higher education ties in our community. We will also hear from LVHA scholarship recipients that will highlight what our organization has done to assist in the advancement of their education within the industry.

We're also asking for your help! With over 51,000 students in 47 Clark County schools, we need your support in our LVHA back-to-school drive for Communities In Schools (CIS). By donating binders, markers, crayons, highlighters, pencils, and backpacks you can make a big difference. Those who donate during the luncheon will be entered for a chance to win a prize!

We will also be offering your own “back-to-school” photos with the option to have professional headshots taken on site. Come early (as early as 11:00 am) or stay late to have your photo taken by Image Las Vegas.

Registration check in will be at 11:30 am with lunch at 12:00 pm.

At Virginia Tech since 2014 as executive associate athletic director and later deputy athletic director, Reed-Francois served as second-in-command to the athletics director and was responsible for external relations and day-to-day operations for 22 sports, more than 600 student-athletes, and 14 facilities. An administrator with an eye toward balancing the complex external and internal facets of a Power Five athletics department, Reed-Francois partnered on budget development for all athletics units at Virginia Tech, prepared the department’s facilities master plan, redesigned fundraising strategy, and revitalized the university’s student-athlete success program.

She is heavily involved in athletics administration at the national level, participating in the Division 1 Athletics Directors Leadership Institute and Fellows Program, the Women Leaders in College Sports’ Executive Institute, and as a member of the College Football Playoff Committee’s operations committee.
