It is at those times that our character is exposed and opportunity for growth is realized. Leadership is a life skill and when nurtured can take a person well beyond his/her perceived potential and positively affect their environment. Leadership encompasses characteristics such as vision, reflection, responsibility, compassion, humility, trustworthiness, determination, perseverance, and dedication. The Las Vegas-Clark County Library District has been an active partner with the city of Las Vegas West Las Vegas Arts Center PVAC since its conception in 1996.
