Roxanne Clarke Recognized at Women in County Government Awards
Today at the Women in County Government recognition ceremony, one of our very own, Roxanne Clarke, was presented with the Public Service: The Extra Mile award for going above and beyond the call of duty as a bilingual Psychiatric Social Worker at Canyon Oaks Youth Center.
Canyon Oaks Supervising Mental Health Clinician, Victoria Valencia, presented Roxanne with the award, citing her ability to overcome unexpected challenges with a level head.
In her acceptance speech, Roxanne credited her mother with insisting she pursue a college degree – a decision that opened up a world of opportunities which previously seemed out of reach. Roxanne also spoke about the importance of nurturing and supporting our youth community, so they too can achieve their full potential.
