Carson City, Nevada - Governor Brian Sandoval released the following statement today after learning of the death of Jim Rogers.

“With the passing of Jim Rogers, Nevada has lost one of its most outspoken and fearless advocates.  Jim was nationally recognized as a successful philanthropist and business leader.  In the State of Nevada, he was so much more.  Jim dedicated his time and resources to advancing our education system and as chancellor of higher education, was fierce in his commitment to make sure our students had the resources they needed to succeed."
