Why do you want to serve on the Board of Regents?
Wixom: I have a deep commitment to higher education. As a first generation college student, I appreciate the difference education made in my life and have an understanding of the positive impact it can have on the lives of people in our state. I want to make sure everyone in Nevada has the opportunity to attend a community college, state college or university. Giving back to education, and higher education specifically, is a vital area of service for me.
