CSN Joins Las Vegas MLK Parade: Honoring Dr. King’s Legacy

The spirit of unity and commemoration filled the streets of Las Vegas as the College of Southern Nevada (CSN) proudly participated in the Annual MLK Parade alongside our esteemed President, Dr. Zaragoza.

The MLK Parade, a cornerstone event in Las Vegas, serves as a poignant tribute to the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It’s a time for communities to come together, reflect on the progress made, and recommit to the ideals of equality, justice, and social change that Dr. King championed.

CSN’s presence in the parade symbolized our unwavering dedication to these principles. Led by Dr. Zaragoza, our college community marched in solidarity, showcasing our commitment to diversity, inclusion, and the pursuit of a more just society.

As we walked alongside fellow participants, waving to cheering crowds lining the streets, we were reminded of the profound impact Dr. King’s message continues to have on our nation. His vision of a world where individuals are judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character remains as relevant today as it was during the Civil Rights Movement.

Participating in the MLK Parade was not just an act of solidarity; it was a reaffirmation of CSN’s values and our ongoing efforts to foster a campus environment where everyone feels respected, valued, and empowered to succeed.

As the parade came to a close, and we bid farewell to the lively atmosphere, the spirit of Dr. King’s dream lingered in our hearts and minds. It served as a reminder that the journey towards equality is ongoing and that each step we take, together, brings us closer to realizing his vision. After all, witnessing our new athletic mascot Cooper and Sting the Nevada State’s mascot capturing a photo together, exemplifying the love and unity that our community fosters to uphold our enduring legacy of diversity, inclusion, and, of course, education.

At CSN, we are proud to have taken part in this meaningful event, and we remain committed to advancing Dr. King’s legacy, both on our campus and in the broader community.
