Leslie Rogers recognized for recent retirement

The Lassen County Board of Supervisors recognized social worker Leslie Rogers last week on her retirement.

Rogers began her career with the county in December 2014 for Health and Social Services as a social worker IV with Child and Family Services, a position she held until her retirement on May 19.

“Leslie was a dedicated intake social worker. She fielded calls made to CFS and tracked down additional documents as needed, entered referrals and communicated frequently with Law Enforcement. Leslie also carried a small caseload of courtesy cases, occasionally investigated a referral, and conducted monthly contacts. She was a valuable member of the team, always willing to help those around her. Leslie was very dedicated to her job and drove three hours a day, back and forth to work from her home in Plumas County,” read the proclamation unanimously approved by the board July 20.

“Leslie will be enjoying her family during retirement, and still serving her community as a volunteer firefighter. Leslie was an asset to the county and the public she served. She will be missed along with her delicious chocolate chip cookies. Best wishes to Leslie as she moves onto the nest chapter of her life.”
