APPA is pleased to announce that Kim Case-Nichols, executive director of space and facilities management for the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV, has been selected as the 2021 Pacesetter Award for the educational facilities management industry.
“Recipients of the Pacesetter Award have made significant contributions to APPA through leadership roles in local chapters, APPA regions, and APPA international. Their volunteer input provides the backbone of the APPA organization, often serving as elected leaders, authors and event hosts,” said Margaret Tennessen, vice president of member and community engagement for APPA. “Kim’s embrace of technology and championing of diversity and inclusion in the industry have opened new opportunities for membership recruitment and retention in the PCAPPA region. Her contributions of time, effort, resources, and leadership abilities promote and enhance APPA and the educational facilities management profession and will help guide the industry in the coming years.”
Case-Nichols will be recognized July 21 during the 2021 APPA Annual Conference and Virtual Facilities Summit.
