In addition to his newspaper writing, Clifton has written six books including the most recent, “Reno.”

The Nevada Sagebrush Alumni Chapter was formed in 2012 to provide an outlet for former members of the Nevada Sagebrush to socialize and create an ongoing network for current and former members of the student newspaper. The organization stands to preserve the history and tradition of the Sagebrush.

Moreover, the group exists to provide professional advice to current staff members of the Nevada Sagebrush while hosting annual or semi-annual fundraising opportunities.
