I decided to start the 25 Notable Las Vegas Women publication to accomplish three important purposes:

“The first purpose is to acknowledge the achievements and the life histories of 25 outstanding women whose contributions to our community have made a significant difference in Nevada, and that the book will become a permanent piece of history for Nevada.

My second purpose with the book was to inspire young Nevada women to set and reach their goals by reading the life stories of these 25 accomplished women.

They can learn what motivated them and what choices eventually led them to the successes they have achieved today.

The third purpose was to support the Carole Bellmyre Distinguished Scholarship Fund that I established at UNLV & CSN in 2000. Book sales of this first edition of 25 Notable Las Vegas Women will benefit the Scholarship Fund to help Nevada students in need of financial help to continue their education.
