Rota Rosaschi Recognized With Lifetime Achievement Award by UNR School of Social Work

University of Nevada, Reno ~  Rota Rosaschi, who has deep roots in Mason Valley, continues to be recognized by Colleagues, Friends, Family, and Students for her outstanding Social Work Leadership.

After 50 years of service, Rota was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the School of Social Work at UNR presented by UNR Dean Wichinsky.

Rota Rosaschi shared: “Last night the School of Social Work at UNR recognized social workers and social service organizations during their third annual Celebrating Social Work Leaders event at the Atlantis.”

“This event was initiated by Former Dean Shadi Martin and continues with Dean Lillian Wichinsky.”

“March is National Social Work month so it is a great way to recognize so many in a special way.”

“Eight awards are given away called the Compass Rose Awards. They include social justice, competence, dignity, integrity, diversity, service, relationship and leadership.”

“It was a humbling experience when Dean Wichinsky gave me a Lifetime Achievement Award. What a nice way to settle into retirement after 50 years of service. Of course, I still plan on continuing my volunteer work! It’s in the blood…and heart!”

On behalf of the Mason Valley Community, “Congratulations, Miss Rota!” ~ Pizen Switch Times
