Ray Leger, a former state senator and West Las Vegas schools superintendent, died Tuesday. He was 84.
Leger, who had been ill for some months, is believed to be the superintendent with the longest reign in northern Mexico. He served in the 1960s and 1970s.
“That’s a job that is hard to hold for that long,” local attorney Jesus Lopez, a former West board member, said during Wednesday’s County Commission meeting. “He was quite an educator. He worked hand in hand with Tiny Martinez (longtime local leader) in building West.”
