Country star Shania Twain kicked off the first-ever Las Vegas SKC Clubhouse of The Shania Kids Can Foundation at Tom Williams Elementary School in North Las Vegas on Monday. The SKC is Shania’s non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk children in communities across the world. The program, founded as a response to the difficulties Shania endured as a youth, is designed to implement simple, yet effective, initiatives to increase the potential of students in the program to live successful, fulfilling lives.
Shania chose Las Vegas as the next program in the SKC because of her newfound appreciation of Las Vegas stemming from her recently launched resident show “Shania: Still the One at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
“As I began my residency here in Las Vegas, I knew that this is where I should introduce a new program to give back to this wonderful community that has welcomed me with open arms and made me feel so at home,” Shania says. “The children at Tom Williams Elementary are special indeed and watching the development and growth of these children into motivated, high-achieving members of our community will be one of my greatest achievements.”
The Las Vegas SKC Clubhouse at Tom Williams Elementary School in North Las Vegas is a partnership between the SKC and The Public Education Foundation of Nevada.
