The word “advocate” has many definitions: champion, supporter, promoter, spokesperson, campaigner, and crusader.  Musiette McKinney, UNLV GEAR UP coordinator, has proven to be all of those and more in her long career of assisting and supporting students from diverse backgrounds throughout Southern Nevada to achieve their postsecondary educational goals.  Her efforts are well known and admired throughout the educational community. Musiette is always ready to assist those in need by offering guidance and resources.  Her remarkable energy and passion along with her tireless efforts and commitment have affected the lives of countless students and their families. Musiette always finds a way to give a little extra, with new and inventive workshops, as well as through direct interaction with schools, students and their communities. For these reasons and so many more, we are honored to name Musiette as the recipient of the inaugural University of Nevada, Reno, Las Vegas Office for Prospective Students ‘Bruce Shively Advocate of the Year’ award.
