An American flag and a banner mark the entrance to the newly dedicated Jesus “Jesse” Griego gymnasium at Valley
Elementary and Middle School in Ribera. The West Las Vegas School Board unanimously approved the naming at a school board meeting last month in honor of the late Griego, a graduate of West Las Vegas High School. Griego died more than four decades ago in the Vietnam war at the age of 20. A kindergarten school in Vietnam also bears his name.
