The saying “PV breeds productive people” remains a true statement! Congratulations to Primary graduate Pamela Goynes-Brown ’84, who made history by becoming Nevada’s first black woman mayor. She officially took office last month and her family, friends and sorority sisters witnessed the monumental moment.

Goynes-Brown is a North Las Vegas resident and a longtime educator who has worked in the public sector since 1964 and has lived in the city since 1964. According to PVAMU, she worked for the Clark County School District for 35 years before serving as the first female African American councilwoman of North Las Vegas Ward 2. She was also the first African American pro-tempore mayor, having served in that role twice.

In a previous interview, Goynes-Brown said her four years would be a continuation of her work on the council, which would allow her to complete a mission already underway and give her time to put a “final stamp of approval” on projects that we did already in the books.”

She earned a bachelor’s degree in music education from PVAMU in 1984 magna cum laude. She also holds a master’s degree from NOVA Southeastern University in elementary education with a certification in educational leadership.
