About the University of Nevada, Reno Foundation
Message from the 2013 Foundation Chair
One recent Nevada graduate gave us all something to be proud of at the beginning of 2013. I am referencing, of course, Colin Kaepernick ’10 (management) and the excitement he brought to the San Francisco 49ers and his impressive Super Bowl effort. And let’s not forget the effort he led two years ago at Nevada’s stunning win in the Kraft Hunger Bowl. Those events allowed Nevada fans to display their Wolf Pack pride and enthusiasm, and although Colin made the successful leap to the big time, he will always be part Wolf Pack blue.
As we celebrate the success of one of our former students, it is important to focus on the academic success of our current students and embrace changes on the horizon. One change will be the demolition of Getchell Library to prepare for the new Student Achievement Center, which will bring synergy to the student experience on campus by housing many significant student resources in one place.
As a fellow alum and chair of the Foundation board, I am grateful for the philanthropic support of our Nevada community, which has been the catalyst for many past and future changes on campus. Such changes create new beginnings and bring renewed enthusiasm for the talent that already exists, and the talent we have yet to imagine.
