“We have no company without our immigrants.” – Steve Wynn

Thousands of workers representing various races and cultures make up the Wynn Family. To aid those seeking citizenship, Wynn offers citizenship classes to employees. Fifty-three employees graduated from these classes in 2015, and each was provided a check in his or her name to cover the Citizenship Application Fee.

One employee to benefit from these classes is senior floral manager Evelyn Herrera. “Just being an employee of Wynn opens so many doors for you throughout Las Vegas and wherever you go. We have traveled to different locations in the United States and the moment people find out we come from the Wynn everything changes,” she says. “Even though I am just the floral manager they welcome me as if I am a representative of Mr. Wynn.”

Steve Wynn addresses the citizenship class with a message of encouragement: “Immigration was at the heart of America’s vitality and strength and confidence to meet almost any challenge, and now you come along I hope with the same sense of hope.”
