Community Donations Assist College, Programs

The Western Nevada College Jack C. Davis Observatory has another telescope to enhance student learning opportunities, thanks to a donation from an Incline Village man. In addition, a camera and office materials have been donated to by two Northern Nevada residents.

Robert Mimiaga has donated a NexStar 5 Celestron telescope with accessories, including a solar filter and tripod, to WNC. The astronomy equipment is valued at approximately $3,500.

WNC also received 2,000 office folders valued at more than $2,000 from Sherri Thurin of the Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs in Carson City, as well as a Pentax ZX-50 SLR 35mm camera from Gary Culbertson of Fallon.

“Through donations from people in the communities we serve, our efforts to provide quality education are strengthened,” said WNC President Chester Burton. “Their support of Western Nevada College and its students is greatly appreciated.”
