For Immediate Release

Nevada Power will surprise the students of Myrtle Tate Elementary School, 2450 Lincoln Rd., Monday, February 14 with 800s Valentine's Day Teddy Bears.

As part of the presentation, several Nevada Power vans, featuring the new Nevada Power logo, will roll-out of the West Sahara facility at 8:30 a.m., filled to the brim with cuddly teddy bears. Upon arriving at Myrtle Tate, the bears will be unloaded and quickly given to 5th grade students who will assist in distributing the stuffed toys to the entire school.

The bears are a gift to the students as part of Clark County's Focus School Project in which schools are matched with businesses and other organizations to address the needs of Clark County students. Special programs include promoting health, tutors, mentors, student incentives, teacher recognition, equipment upgrades, office assistance and classroom volunteers.

The teddy bear delivery also will serve to premiere the new Nevada Power logo which signals the evolution of the electric industry to a competitive marketplace."It's important to emphasize that while our look has changed, our values remain the same," said Mike Niggli, Nevada Power chairman and CEO."We will maintain our promise to do everything we can to help our community flourish, and that includes participating in worthwhile activities such as the Clark County Focus School Project."

"Nevada Power has been wonderfully proactive in seeking out our monetary needs, as well as providing human resources," said Marie Wakefield, principal of Myrtle Tate Elementary."Their plans have been met with enthusiasm by everyone involved - from attendance incentives to mentoring youth, to providing folders for the students and classroom supplies for the faculty."
