Bryn Mawr Graduate Is the New Mayor of Las Vegas

Earlier today, Carolyn Goldmark Goodman was sworn in as the 20th mayor of the city of Las Vegas, Nevada. Goodman cruised to a landslide victory in the June 7 election. Goodman replaces her husband Oscar Goodman who served for four terms.

Carolyn Goodman is a 1961 graduate of Bryn Mawr College. After moving to La Vegas, she earned a master’s degree in counseling from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. In 1984 she founded the Meadows School, the only nonsectarian, nonprofit K-12 college preparatory school in the state of Nevada. That year 140 students enrolled. Now there are nearly 900 students at the school and 100 percent of its graduates go on to enroll at a four-year college.
