Community Overview

RJRA strives to make meaningful contributions to the advancement of the profession and the community. Particularly, RJRA employees have always been interested in giving back to the community by participating in local events in the hopes of inspiring students to pursue careers in Engineering, Planning, and Public Involvement.

I have always felt it is very important to try to inspire children, especially minority children, to pursue engineering careers. Being a minority myself, I feel that I have a story to share and hope that I can be an example to a student.
