Nevada’s African American Achievers: Eva Martin
Eva Martin had big dreams when she began her professional career in Chicago Public Schools in 1966.
Her primary dream was to someday own and operate her own business. Several years later, with the support of her family and the McDonald’s Corporation, she was able to achieve her dream. Currently, she is the owner/operator of several McDonald’s restaurants.
Martin lives by the philosophy of “giving back.” She currently supports and serves on the board of the Summerlin Women’s Club and the March of Dimes. The businesswoman also chairs the board of the Ronald McDonald House in Las Vegas, which provides a comfortable living environment and support for families with very ill children. She is instrumental in the organization’s scholarship program, which provides 180 low-income students with money for higher education.
Exemplifying her commitment to community and education, she will be hosting the Buffalo Soldiers at participating McDonald’s restaurants during Black History Month. We are loving Ms. Martin for all she does to uplift people in Southern Nevada.
