Governor Sandoval addresses HOPE For Prisoners graduates…
“If it were not for my mentor, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Mentors are able to give thoughtful guidance when we need it most. My mentor provided an ongoing relationship of learning, challenge and meaningful dialogue. She taught me to think differently and approach the challenges in life with an open mind. When I stumbled, my mentor was there to help me get back on my feet.”
-Senator Tick Segerblom

“Mentorship takes on various forms. But the most meaningful experiences for me have been with individuals who supportively pushed me in ways that made me uncomfortable. Growth is, indeed, not comfortable. In fact, it can often be painful. This is why mentorship is about so much more than simply guidance or advice–it is a supportive, authentic relationship.”
-Emily J. Salisbury, Ph.D., Associate Professor, UNLV and HOPE for Prisoners Advisory Council Member
