More than Philanthropy
Albert Rodriguez, CSN Facilities
Chris Collins, VP, Schneider Technology
Dave Fagotti, Sr. Sales Engineer, Schneider
Schneider has been a CSN partner since 2000. For years, Schneider has recruited CSN students from programs at the CSN Air Conditioning Center of Excellence. Schneider technology keeps CSN buildings safe, heated, cooled, and sustainable through high efficient systems. In 2020 Schneider and CSN won the Project of the Year. Schneider has opened their suite at the Las Vegas T-Mobile arena for donor thank-you events.
In 2019, Schneider made a gift of $100,000 to the Betty Engelstad School of Health Sciences on the CSN Henderson campus. The building will open in Fall 2021 and allow CSN to increase the number of health care professionals graduating into the workforce – now more important than ever.
More than a Donor
Dr. Federico Zaragoza, CSN President
Edgar Patino, Business Optimization, NV Energy, CSNF Board Chair and CSN alumni
NV Energy has supported CSN students for decades and has built a scholarship endowment of more than $500,000. Earnings on this endowment has allowed many students to attend CSN and lessen or eliminate their college debt.
In 2019, NV Energy doubled down on their commitment to student success through a $250,000 gift to the Betty Engelstad School of Health Sciences.
