“We are so thrilled that Marilyn has received this award from CECU. It’s an honor and a privilege,” said Janis Paulson, Chief Executive Officer at Unitek Learning. “CECU is one of the nation’s largest associations representing private, postsecondary colleges. Together, we can help equip future generations with the career skills they need to succeed, from allied healthcare to nursing and beyond.”

On June 22, 2023, Marilyn Lim-Carreon received the CECU Leadership Award. As the Vice-Chair of the Nevada Association for Career Colleges (NACC), Marilyn advocates for the entire state of Nevada on behalf of every private, post-secondary school. This award honored her leadership and tireless commitment to the advancement of career education.

“A state association is necessary to give voice to the career schools that are unrepresented in Carson City,” said Dr. Jason Altmire, President and Chief Executive Officer at Career Education Colleges and Universities. “Building a new association from the ground up is difficult, but Marylin jumped right in. Thanks to her unwavering leadership, the Nevada Association of Career Colleges had an extraordinarily successful first year by every measure. Marilyn led the way to this success, and I can’t think of anyone who is more deserving of this award.”

Kelley Blanchard, Executive Vice President at Career Education Colleges and Universities, added: “The 2023 CECU Leadership Award was presented to Marilyn Lim-Carreon for her dedication and leadership with NACC. Marilyn has been a trailblazer for the organization since its inception as the Vice Chair of the Board of Directors. She is a leader at her institution and a powerful voice for the advancement of career schools for the state of Nevada.”
