LAS VEGAS – The State Treasurer’s Office announced Monday they will be hosting a statewide bus tour to promote the services offered through their office, including the Nevada College Savings Plans and Unclaimed Property. The bus tour will hold a kick off event on Monday, October 5 at the Henderson International School where staff will be available to talk with community members about the importance of saving for college.
“Far too many Nevadans overlook the opportunity to get a college education. We believe that an education plan after high school including a degree from a 4-year institution or 2-year community college or trade school will be essential for success in the 21st century. The Nevada State Treasurer’s Office provides several college savings options, and most are very highly ranked nationally,” said Dan Schwartz, Nevada State Treasurer. “We’re also introducing Sage, our college savings mascot, who will accompany the bus.”
Nevada State Treasurer Dan Schwartz will be available for interview at the event.
