Riddell Stadium, the annual Truckee River Clean Up, Truckee Meadows Boys and Girls Club, Veterans Guest House, St. Vincent’s Transitional Living Center, Evelyn Mount Community Outreach Project, Rancho San Rafael Nature Trail, and the Idlewild Park Children’s Train Station.
The Nevada Chapter also worked with the state legislature to create the state’s charter school program and its first charter school, Academy for Career Education, focused on construction and vocational curriculum.
Craig Madole has served as assistant executive director for the Nevada Chapter AGC since April of 2013. He also served as the chapter’s legislative liaison in the 2013 and 2015 sessions of the Nevada Legislature.
Madole has been a member of the Nevada Air National Guard since 1989 serving in a variety of roles. He is currently assigned as the chief enlisted manager as a chief master sergeant. During a 2011 deployment to Afghanistan, Madole served as a squadron superintendent and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal upon return from his tour of duty.
