The Las Vegas Sun announced earlier this week that the University of Nevada, Las Vegas School of Medicine will be named after Armenian-American mega-businessman, philanthropist, and founder of three of the most popular hotels in Las Vegas. The building will be the first estate to be named after him. This comes as a gesture of gratefulness for all of the anonymous generosity provided by Kerkorian to the Las Vegas Community over the years. It is worth noting that Kerkorian donated $1 billion to Armenia after the 1988 earthquake, and the budget for the recent movie The Promise was provided from Kerkorian’s estate, which cost up to $100 million.
