“I’ve had a great time working with my Student Leadership Academy group. I hope that this job fair betters the life of a lot of people in our community,” said Rumbley, who is an Associate in Arts (College Transfer) student. Emily Escobar, who is enrolled in RCC’s Associate in Science program, said, “It amazes me that this started as an idea and now it has the potential to help people. I do have high expectations for our job fair and hope it does help our community. It’s a great experience and we are learning to lead by serving others.”
