Local Las Vegas business publication VEGAS INC has recognized MSTS Supervisor II Marylesa Howard as one of its 40 Under 40. In selecting the winners for the 18th annual awards, the publication reviewed nominees’ community service, entrepreneurial spirit and impact on their respective industries.

Marylesa was both surprised and honored to be recognized.

“I didn’t know a mathematician could end up working in underground mines, wearing hardhats and steel-toed boots, but I love my job,” Marylesa told VEGAS INC prior to the event. “My colleagues are great, the work is challenging, and I feel like I am giving back to the community, all of which create a satisfying work life for me.”

While honorees represented a variety of sectors, they all had one thing in common, the publication says: “They’re making Las Vegas a better place.”

This year’s 40 Under 40 were recognized at a March 22 event at Red Rock Resort. To view Marylesa’s feature, please visit VEGAS INC’s website, here. Awardees are listed in alphabetical order.
