LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak made his quarterly salary donation to Nevada's public schools.

The governor's office reported a donation of $27,474.45 was made to Nevada’s K-12 public schools on Thursday, totaling almost $300,000 in contributions since Sisolak took office in January 2019.

Sisolak continues to make good on his pre-election promise to donate his entire taxpayer-funded salary over the course of his four-year term to positively impact Nevada's public schools, according to the governor's office.

“These continued donations remain a symbol of my commitment to education and my promise to positively impact the lives of our educators, families, and the children of Nevada’s public schools. Improving our public schools is a priority for me and this is one way I can personally help achieve this priority,” Sisolak said. "The first lady and I are humbled to have the opportunity to give back and help improve the lives and the educational opportunities for the children of this great state."
