Boyd Student Tasha Schwikert Featured in Las Vegas Review-Journal

On Nov. 29, Boyd student Tasha Schwikert was featured in the Las Vegas Review-Journal article Students with diverse backgrounds land Las Vegas Business Academy scholarships.

Shwikert recently won a $75,000 scholarship from the Las Vegas Business Academy, a nonprofit that supports "tuition challenged" graduate students pursuing business, hotel administration, and law degrees.

"After Schwikert graduated from UCLA in 2009, she worked for a sports agency in Los Angeles and discovered that some aspiring agents at the company were studying in a part-time law program. She audited some law school classes in late 2011 and enrolled at the UNLV law school the following year," the article reads.

Schwikert competed as a gymnast in the 2000 Olympics, where the U.S. was awarded the bronze medal in the team competition. Learn more about Schwikert here.
