The LGBTQ Center of Southern Nevada (The Center) named Jim McCoy as its new development manager. Formerly the Director of Production at MGM Resorts, McCoy brings incredible enthusiasm and positivity to his new job at a time when The Center is experiencing an increased demand for its services and programming.
Patrick Duffy and Tim Haughinberry joined The Center’s Governing Board of Directors. Duffy is the president and CEO of The Nevada School of the Arts, which offers world-class music instruction to inspiring young musicians. Haughinberry is the founder and CEO of Back Bar USA which creates marketing and promotional programming for hospitality programs.
“This is an exciting time for The Center and we are happy to welcome Jim, Patrick and Tim to our team as we work to expand our reach into the communities we serve,” says John Waldron, CEO of The Center. The Center recently received a major grant from the Englestad Foundation to add a self-sustaining pharmacy operation to its HIV/STI/STD Testing Clinic and then upgrade the clinic to be a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). The Center has continued operations during COVID and expanded its services to support the underserved communities in Southern Nevada.
