The Nevada Latino Bar Association plans to present its 2021 Inspira Awards at 5:30 p.m. on October 27, 2021 at The Doyle in Las Vegas.

Formerly known as the Las Vegas Latino Bar Association, the group expanded in 2021 to include Latino lawyers and judges from across the state and was renamed the Nevada Latino Bar Association.

Claudia Aguayo, an attorney for the city of North Las Vegas, is the chapter president.

The evening of recognition, celebration and fun will honor:

2021 U.S. District Court Inspira Awardee Gloria M. Navarro, for her countless contributions to the Nevada legal community, including as a founding member of the Latino Bar Association (LBA).

· Inaugural recipient of the Alianza Ruth Furman Award from ImageWords Communications for being a valued friend to the Nevada Chapter.

· The inaugural Estrella Award winner, Adrian Viesca, for being an LBA member who has an unprecedented commitment to community service.

The event will also reward the winners of this year’s Andale scholarships. The Andale Scholarship is open to self-identifying Latinos nationwide, with priority given to students with ties to Nevada.

The scholarship helps pay for Kaplan Law School Admission Test (LSAT) preparation courses and related test fees (a $1,700 value). A higher LSAT score increases the student’s chances of being admitted to law school and eligible for law school scholarships.

Event tickets are $65 for non-members, $55 for members, and $40 for students. To purchase tickets, visit
