Orono Community Education is proud to introduce a new addition to our team, Genna Torney. Genna is the Youth Development Coordinator. Here is a little bit about Genna:
Genna comes to Orono Community Education as a former Orono graduate and community practice social worker. She graduated from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities with her Master’s in Social Work. She worked at the YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities with youth experiencing homelessness, at the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Minnesota and the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota. In addition to her work experience she is also a trained Mental Health First Aid Instructor and volunteered within the Orono school district for many years.
In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family, walking her dogs and going to concerts. She is looking forward to working in the Orono school district.
