  • Mentor of the Month: Director seeks more time in classroom

    Conni Reichert, director of Allied Health Sciences at Luna Community College, has taught hundreds of students throughout her years as a nursing instructor.

    Reichert, a native of Iowa, started her career at Luna in 1999 as a part-time nursing instructor following a self-directed tour of New Mexico with her husband Steve.


    “We love this area,” Reichert said. “I wanted to teach nursing. We also found that Las Vegas had a rich post-secondary education infrastructure for our children.”
