Hello,

First, let me thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to allow me to introduce myself. 

My name is Laura Perkins, I am putting my hat into the ring for Nevada System of Higher Education University Regent. I believe I can make a real difference in student's lives. Affordable education and viable programs that help to diversify our economy in Nevada for a start.  I believe that education can change not only the current generation but each and every generation after. The start of a legacy.  A positive legacy. A legacy that provides opportunities for a better life. Education opens the doors to these opportunities.

I was born in Southern Nevada. I attended Clark High School. I went to College of Southern Nevada where I completed my Associates Degree in Electronic Engineering Technology. Then I continued my education at University Nevada Las Vegas, where I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Post-Secondary Education. UNLV is part of the Nevada System of Higher Education, which includes University Nevada Reno, Nevada State College, Great Basin College, Western Nevada College and Truckee Meadows Community College.

I have spent the majority of my adult life in service to the betterment of my community.  Whether it was with Frontier Girl Scouts, North Las Vegas Library District, National Coalition of 100 Black Women or City of North Las Vegas Planning Commissioner I have always sought to bring people to their potential. 

As a Planning Commissioner for the City of North Las Vegas, I learned to approach problems with a win-win attitude. And that there are many ways to achieve the same goals. There I developed a respect for the constituents, developers and staff which became mutual. I have had to negotiate with electeds, lobbyist and citizens. 

With that in mind, I am asking for your generous support. Thank you!
