Community Corrections employee a finalist for national honor

A Lyon County Community Corrections employee is one of five finalists for a national leadership award.

Erin Rodriguez, a Juvenile Supervisor for the Fifth Judicial District has been nominated for the #Catalyst4Change award program through cFive Solutions, Inc. The award recognizes and celebrates community supervision change makers working to impact the lives of their clients and community. Rodriguez, a 15-year employee with Community Corrections, explains the functions of her job

 

 
Lyon County is home to the only Home Court program in the country. The program includes a team consisting of the judge, county attorney, defense attorney, probation office, drug and alcohol providers, school, mental health personnel and the DCF office which meets weekly typically with juveniles that have been arrested more than once or those arrested for a felony.
 
To have it nationally recognized is quite an honor says Director of Community Corrections Steve Willis, who nominated Rodriguez.
 
 

Rodriguez joins four other finalists from Kansas, Nevada, Ohio and Vermont. Voting on the #Catalyst4Change winner continues through Friday. Willis encourages people to log onto cfive.com and click on the Catalyst4Change icon to cast your vote for Erin Rodriguez.
