Las Vegas Field Policy Staff's
6th Year of Mentoring Program

Irma Mandujano became the sixth (6th) student that the Las Vegas Field Office staff has mentored. Las Vegas Field Office Director, Kenneth J. LoBene, states, "It's great again for HUD to launch our sixth year in opening its doors to our partners who provide the opportunity to attract young adults into the public sector and for the youth to understand the importance of giving back to their neighborhoods and communities."

Ms. Mandujano is assigned to the office of Field Policy Management (FPM.) She is required to work and learn various programs in support of HUD goals. With little training or supervision, she has been able to complete all tasks assigned to her. Her bi-lingual language skills in Spanish and English were invaluable to our customer service program.

The Summer Business Institute is sponsored by a partnership of Clark County Government and 70 Southern Nevada businesses. They promote summer employment for inner city junior and senior high school students. The Clark County Summer Business Development Division pays Irma.

The Las Vegas HUD office is proud to have such a great candidate. Irma will begin her senior year at Desert Pines High School in Las Vegas. During her senior year she will continue her involvement with specific clubs such as the National Honor Society, Student Organization of Latinos (S.O.L.) and National Skills U.S.A.

Focusing on her studies at home is especially noteworthy. She lives with her family that includes with two older brothers and six younger sisters. She also volunteers for community service whenever she is able to help. She stays very involved in many sports, like soccer, cross-country and Track and Field.

She is planning on graduating with Honors. She will pursue a college degree at the local Community College during the fall of 2008. She is currently thinking about becoming a registered nurse in order that she can give back to her community.

The HUD Las Vegas Field Office personnel have contributed to Irma's development. They urge her to do well in her chosen career. Bernard C. Yergeau, Operations Analyst in FPM, was the primary mentor for her training.
