My name is Roley Corrigan-Halpern and I am a Junior at Grinnell College majoring in Psychology. On campus, I work at the Grinnell College Preschool and garden. My participation in programs like JUF’s VOICES has instilled in me the importance of giving back as a part of how I practice Judaism. My interests in education and public health make the Sarnoff Center the perfect place to put my passions into practical use while providing assistance to the Jewish community at large. In my free time, I like to play pool, draw, and sculpt!
Post graduation I am interested in exploring a variety of career paths such as early childhood education, social work, and psychology. The Sarnoff Center presents me with the ability to learn community needs assessment and outreach skills which I can later apply within these fields. I am astounded by the work being done at the center and honored to be able to be included in the effort to better the Jewish community.
