  • Incredibly proud of Nicki and the entire Red Mountain family. Today is proud day as we celebrate the recognition of a talented educator with a passion for being uniquely special and innovative. It was an honor to meet Mr. Milken and thank him for placing education at the top of the list of priorities. Another proud day to be a Mountain Lion!
