Imani Carr is a motivated and driven individual – a young woman who gets what she wants out of life, and loves encouraging others to live up to the best of their abilities. Friends have nothing but praise for Imani’s character, describing her as “loyal,” “thoughtful” and “kind to a fault.” She has a warm and happy aura that can’t help but to spread joy, and is the type of person who will always try to be there for anyone even if it means putting aside her own problems.
In 1988, educator Dr. Alan Rowe and his wife, Donna, decided to create a movement for black college awareness. Inspired their own son’s attendance at Jackson State University, they established the United College Action Network (U-CAN).
It was almost 10 years ago that Nevada State College opened its doors to those seeking higher education. A decade later, the student body is making history again, with the election of two African-American males — student body president Deuvall Dorsey and vice president Bentley McDonald — to provide leadership on the Henderson campus.
