Pineapple March 2017 Issue

Hello everyone! As we “march” on with the spring season, events at TISOH are beginning to bloom. The Alumni Association recently presented their spring event with a fun night for all. Students stepped out of their classrooms and alums stepped out of their daily jobs to tour the iconic vintage signs of old Las Vegas at the NEON Museum. Before and after the tour, there was a social mixer where the building of networking and friendships took place, interspersed with much laughter. For me, the neon signs were a trip down memory lane of when I first came to Las Vegas as a tourist.
It was 198? and long before the construction of the multitude of mega-resorts we see today. There was no Bellagio and no Paris, instead it was just simpler casinos such as the Hacienda, Sands and Desert Inn. I remember staying at the Imperial Palace. Las Vegas sure has changed since then!
Las Vegas is truly a city that never sleeps and I am proud to be in the thick of the action. What I admire most about this city are the local residents and their spirit of hospitality spirit. As a result, I moved here in 2002 and the rest is history.
