Nyah Jean Dalton

Nyah was a beautiful little girl who touched the hearts and lives of many.
There is a purpose for all of us in this world. She taught us to love
unconditionally, to appreciate laughter, and to wonder at the world. Nyah
was a donor and she gave the gift of life to (2) children, one in Clark County
and the other in Southern California. In order to keep her legacy of helping
others to learn their purpose in this world, a memorial scholarship has been
established in her name. Please use the attached application to apply.
