Jo Menary: Because of you, NUIT was a success

Nevada Union High School recently hosted the 10th annual Boys Invitational Basketball Tournament. While NU prevailed, the real heroes in my view were the families who opened their homes to host more than 80 players who participated in this year’s tournament.

This was more than twice the number of players we housed in 2014.

For most of us, the holiday season is the busiest time of the year. I can’t think of a more selfless gesture than to open one’s home to host visiting student athletes. An enormous thank you to those Rotary and church members, retired teachers and administrators, local business owners, NU football, wrestling and volleyball families and NU staff, coaches and alumni families. It was a tremendous community effort.

Because of you, it all came together. Please know that your service provides a lasting example of hospitality to our youth. Our community is without equal in terms of its generous heart and I am grateful and proud to call this home.
