    KEISHLA MORALES PATHWAYS TO THE WORKFORCE MGM Resorts invests considerable resources in community career training – including the Massachusetts Casino Career Training Institute (MCCTI) Gaming School in downtown Springfield, Massachusetts. We provided instructors, curriculum and gaming equipment, guaranteed interviews to students and tuition reimbursement to graduates who join our team because we have seen firsthand how gaming careers can change lives. For western Massachusetts residents like Keishla Morales, the MCCTI has been a pathway to economic mobility. After earning her high school diploma as a young parent, Keishla joined the MCCTI to train as a games table dealer. Now a dealer at MGM Springfield, Keishla is flourishing in her career and looking to the future. “As a single teen mother who once struggled with childcare, transportation and reliable housing, I still cannot believe how far I have come,” says Keishla, who was awarded an Honorable Citation from the Massachusetts State House and an award from the commissioner of the Massachusetts Department “As a single teen mother who once struggled with of Transitional Assistance for her indomitable spirit. “After childcare, transportation and reliable housing, I graduating from the MCCTI Gaming School, I have a job as still cannot believe how far I have come…” a Table Games Dealer, where I work for one of the biggest – Keishla Morales companies in the world.”

    RESTORING THE CHESAPEAKE BAY’S OYSTER REEFS Oysters purify the Chesapeake Bay as they filter the water for their food. An adult oyster can filter as much as 50 gallons of water a day. Once, the oysters in the Chesapeake Bay – home to MGM National Harbor – could filter a volume of water equal to the entire Bay in just a week.11 After the oystering decline in the mid-1980s, sediment and nitrogen levels began to cause problems in the Bay waters. Today, it would take the remaining Bay oysters more than a year to accomplish the same.12 Our oyster shell recycling program, founded at MGM National Harbor in 2016, collects oyster half-shells from five of our resorts across the country as a means of restoring this critical habitat. At the Hooper’s Island Oyster Company hatchery in the Chesapeake Bay, each half-shell becomes home to an average of ten baby oysters, or “spat.” As the spat mature, the shells are transplanted into sanctuary oyster beds in the Bay reserved for restoration of the ecosystem, not consumption. All told, each shell’s journey from restaurant to reef takes more than a year of hard work and collaboration. We are proud to say that this project has diverted enough oyster shells from landfill to grow over 16 million baby oysters, more than 10 times the number we serve at our restaurants annually. These oysters will not only contribute to the recovery of the Bay but will also secure a sustainable future for the local economy, which depends on healthy waterways. MGM Resorts began purchasing oysters from the Hooper’s Island Oyster Company that are farmed, not fished, in the Chesapeake Bay in late 2018. Their shells will be returned to grow new oysters in the same ecosystem – a circular economy that will ensure the continued health of the Chesapeake Bay. 11. https://www.cbf.org/about-the-bay/more-than-just-the-bay/chesapeake-wildlife/eastern-oysters/oyster-fact-sheet.html 12. https://www.cbf.org/about-the-bay/more-than-just-the-bay/chesapeake-wildlife/eastern-oysters/oyster-fact-sheet.html
