Prescott Valley Parks and Recreation’s Jessica Compton took over as president of the Prescott Area Young Professionals organization this month. Compton has been involved with the organization for three years. When asked what she likes most about the organization, she said, “You make a lot of contacts with other young professionals through the wide variety of activities that outside the organization you would never meet.” In terms of what she wants to accomplish during her tenure as president, Compton said “Kelly Soldwedel Thornhill has set a solid foundation. We are currently very active in our community involvement throughout the area and I would like to expand that. I also want to expand our scholarship program to include working young professionals to include further professional growth.”
