The Bonanza Casino is committed to serving our community and is proud to support the students and educators of North Valleys High School. A “Partners in Education” sponsor since the school opened its doors in 2001, we take pride in teaming up with NVHS to provide scholarship opportunities, educational seminars, internships, job mentor/shadowing and other work training programs.
We also work closely with educators from the school to provide part-time work experience for students in our restaurants. In addition, meal certificates in the Cactus Creek Prime Steakhouse and Branding Iron Café are presented as gifts for the Students of the Month, Teachers of the Month and Homecoming King and Queen. Food and dessert platters for various special functions at the school are also donated throughout each school year.
Each school year the Bonanza Casino awards two $1,000 scholarships to students from North Valleys High School to help ease the burden of the cost of higher education.
North Valleys High School students in turn give back to the casino by having their choir perform at several of the casino’s employee functions, helping to decorate the casino for the holidays and by doing a “spring cleaning” of the property.
“The relationship between the school and the casino is more than we could have dreamed of. It really is an example of what can happen, what should happen when you invest time and effort in building a relationship with the community.” says Ryan Sheltra, General Manager of the Bonanza Casino.
