“This is an incredible honor and I am excited to lead a union that has been the voice of educators for over 120 years,” said Dawn Etcheverry, Vice President/President-Elect of the Nevada State Education Association. “The theme at our 53rd Delegate Assembly was “Time For 20” and along with NSEA’s new incoming Vice President, Brian Wallace, we look forward to working to address the crisis in Nevada public education by pushing our elected officials to invest in our educators.”
“I have worked with Dawn for years, and it’s been incredible to see her grow as an educator and as a leader,” said Brian Rippet, President of the Nevada State Education Association. “The Association will be in talented hands and I am excited to see the things she accomplishes for our kids, our members, and our state.”
