Geneva Galloway, administrative specialist for the Donaghey Scholars Honors Program, is one of the first graduates of the City of Little Rock’s new R.O.C.K. (Residents Obtaining Community Knowledge) Academy.
“I have been on this journey of civic engagement since about 2016,” said Galloway, who participated in the second academy cohort. “I saw this as an opportunity to get more involved with the city. Through serving as a board member on my neighborhood association in Broadmoor and through my work at UA Little Rock, I have found that I can make the biggest difference right here in my own backyard.”
The City of Little Rock launched its new R.O.C.K. Academy community education course on civic engagement in fall 2020 to cultivate understanding and enhance the relationship between city government and its residents.
