CARSON CITY, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- Tennis great and native Nevadan Andre Agassi was the keynote speaker for The 46th Annual Governor's Dinner in Carson City on Friday.

Wwhile his tennis career took him all over the world, Agassi always stayed connected to his hometown of Las Vegas. In 1994, he created the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education. Over 20 years, the foundation has honed its mission to focus on transforming public education.

Agassi talked to News 4 about how special this event is to him. "This is a privilege to be here at the Governor's Mansion, this is the first time for me. So I always like doing something for the first time, it feels really special. First Nevadan to be here at this event in 46 years of having it, so that's also really special. Just growing up and coming here so often and competing, and you know it's played a significant part in my development."

All proceeds from Friday's dinner will benefit student-athlete scholarships at the University of Nevada.
