Christina Kim ’05 (political science), entering freshman and National Merit Scholar Zachary Johnson, and Deanne Leonard ’07 (psychology/biology) who won the Herz Gold Medal for academic achievement, are among Nevada’s top minds. That the University not only attracts these brilliant scholars, but finds them singing its praises as alums, is a trend President Milton Glick wants to see continue. Donors and deans are also striving to find ways to attract and keep top students, because, ultimately, the state is best served when our future leaders, managers and entrepreneurs stay close to home. Kim has begun her studies at UCLA’s law school; Johnson will study physics, hoping to become an astronomer or oceanographer; and Leonard began her first semester at the University of Nevada School of Medicine this fall. See story on page 20.
