Child Development Center Celebrates Preschool Graduates
For the 16 attendees of Western Nevada College’s Child Development Center Preschool Graduation Ceremony, June 4 is a day that will not be forgotten.
“Graduation is always a special time, whether it’s a college degree or a preschool graduation,” CDC Director Anna Lisa Acosta-Rogers said. “For us at the Child Development Center, this represents growth, success, happiness and a bit of sadness as we say goodbye to these wonderful children.”
Each graduate received a preschool diploma, a special letter from Wildcats teacher Carla Tolotti, and their final evaluation results.
The CDC’s preschool program prepares children in the community for kindergarten, focusing on their cognitive development, language development, physical development, literacy, math, socialization, and more.
“We are so grateful to the families for trusting us with their children and allowing us to spend time with them,” Acosta-Rogers said. “We loved every minute and will miss them so much. Please don’t forget to visit!”

Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Runs returns to WNC for the second time
The Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Runs move into their sophomore residence at Western Nevada College.
“Moving the start and finish to Carson City has taken the race course to another level,” said TRT Endurance Runs race director George Ruiz after the transition to WNC last year. “TRTER has always been considered a tough course.”
The 21st annual event, which is scheduled for July 16, begins and ends in the parking lot behind WNC’s Cedar Building. Riders compete in challenging 102-mile, 50-mile and 50-kilometre tests that require up to 22,000 feet of elevation gain on single-track trails in Carson City, Spooner Lake State Park and National Forest lands Service.
From WNC, participants head to Ash Canyon Road and embark on a strenuous 4,200-foot ascent to Snow Valley Peak. The demanding 100+ mile course requires riders to go as far south as Spooner Lake, as far north on the Tahoe Rim Trail to Diamond Peak Ski Resort before sending them on a ‘crazy’ climb to the Crystal Ridge ski slope. Then back on the Tahoe Rim Trail and the welcome descent into Carson City for the finish line behind WNC.
