    Local educators and administrators from the Clark County School District and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas received a briefing on Nevada Army National Guard capabilities and flew in a UH-72 Lakota helicopter civic leader orientation flight earlier this morning at the North Las Vegas Readiness Center.

    The Army and Air Force civic leader program builds connections and bridges gaps between the military and the local community. It also provides regularly scheduled training hours for aircrew. Roughly 20 local educators attended the event that included briefings on the Guard’s new Battle Born Youth Challenge Academy and STARBASE educational programs before the flight briefing at 10 a.m.

    The Nevada National Guard Adjutant General, Maj. Gen. Ondra Berry left the educators with an inspiring message about why they are so important to him.

    “Leader of a community, public service, & education,” Berry prefaced. “If you want a great nation, you have to have those 3 callings of life. It was an educator that grabbed a hold of me and told me he was going to make sure that I get through school and do something with my life. When I made Brigadier General, I brought that same teacher out to pin my one star. That’s the power of an educator!”
