Tribute to Dave Courvoisierby Senator Dean Heller
Posted on 2017-12-07
HELLER. Mr. President, today I wish to congratulate Mr.
Dave Courvoisier on his retirement from KLAS news station in Las Vegas.
I am honored to recognize his dedication to reporting to the citizens
of southern Nevada for 32 years, as well as his commitment to the
communities he has served throughout his career.
A native midwesterner, Dave received both his bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Illinois. He began his career at KCCC Radio in Carlsbad, NM, and then carried his talents to Grand Junction, CO, where he jumpstarted his television career at KJCT. Dave worked for various news outlets in Indiana, Missouri, and North [[Page S7927]] Carolina before settling in Las Vegas with his wife in 1985.
Mr. Courvoisier quickly established himself as a tactful and passionate reporter for KVBC in Las Vegas. His numerous reports related to the issues of disadvantaged children yielded both national and local awards. In particular, Mr. Courvoisier is well-known for his involvement with Wednesday's Child, an adoption program, and he distinguished himself with his news feature series focused on helping foster children find permanent homes. His commitment to this issue is also reflected in his personal life; he established a new chapter of Big Brothers, Big Sisters.
While Dave has led an incredibly successful reporting career, he believes his most important work to be raising his three daughters with his wife. As Nevada's senior Senator, I want to thank Mr. Courvoisier for his dedication to keeping the people of southern Nevada informed. I offer him the very best in his retirement and my well wishes for many successful and fulfilling years to come.
