Quote on How or Why you are involved with RWD:
“I participated in my first Riverworks Discovery event in fall of 2022 at Who Works the Rivers in Pittsburgh.” Seeing the program first-hand and how engaged the students were gave me a full appreciation for the program and work done by RWD. Our industry is a silent one. People not involved don’t notice we are here. Seeing the students learn about job opportunities and hearing them ask questions was a rewarding experience for me”. ~Kristen Stojakovich
