UNLV Pioneer Wall marker reads:

Maude Frazier spent her life working to improve Nevada’s educational system. As a teacher and a lawmaker, Frazier helped reform the state’s educational system, creating county-based school districts. She was instrumental in establishing Nevada Southern University in Las Vegas, now known as the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

"Instead of trying to make people to fit into a certain mold, we should encourage them to furnish their own mold." – Maude Frazier
