United Way held its Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast at Texas Station Gambling Hall & Hotel, which included 400 student representatives from 40 high schools.

The community-building event encourages unity, diversity and the development of leadership skills for Las Vegas youth. The event featured mayors reading ecumenical prayers, an interfaith candle lighting ceremony, a keynote speech by Senator Richard H. Bryan and a special performance by the Green Valley Madrigal Singers.

Following the breakfast, participants had the opportunity to ask questions of local mayors and Clark County School District Chief Student Achievement Officer, Dr. Mike Barton, in a town hall meeting format.
