Jennifer Rooney from the Class of 2018 continues to highlight the values of her experience in NEW Leadership Nevada. Most recently, Jennifer was hired by Opportunity Village as an Index Specialist. WRIN would like to congratulate her on obtaining employment with such an important organization that helps our community.  Opportunity Village provides folks with all levels of disabilities the chance to have vocational training, employment, arts and social recreation. She brings a holistic approach to her position at Opportunity Village with her values founded upon her Sociology degree and time spent doing administrative work at the Station Casinos and Hess Corporation. Since attending our NEW Leadership Program, she continues to hold onto quotable advice from guest speakers like Sondra Cosgrove, Dr. Frantonia Pollins, and Rachael Rizzi that fuel her to go upward and onward. We love watching our students impact their communities and we're looking forward to how Jennifer Rooney will thrive at Opportunity Village.
