LAS VEGAS – Wells Fargo’s Brian Formisano, region bank president, and Lester Romero, small business segment consultant and Valley High School alum, led a special program at the annual Jobs for Nevada’s Graduates (J4NG) Initiation & Installation Ceremony at Valley High School recently.
This special program was an initiation and acceptance that welcomed a new class of Valley High School students and officers into the J4NG program.
