UNLV Alumna, Pat Mulroy

Pat Mulroy is a rarity among the powerbrokers of water. She's a woman and she majored in German literature; her counterparts generally worked their way up through science and engineering. Looking back, Mulroy credits UNLV with providing just the right opportunities for her to seize. Now, 35 years later, she hopes those opportunities doesn't dry up for the generation of Nevadans just beginning their careers.
