The Court Appointed Special Advocates of Red River welcomed eight new volunteers to its Montague County program on Thursday.
E.K. Bostick, Jason Griffin, Steve Kabisch, Shea Brown, Stacie Patterson, Hobie Meekins, Patti Gibbs and Kenzie O’Neal took the oath from Associate Judge Alyce Bondurant.
“More of our children will now be served by a CASA, which is in their best interest,” said Montague County CASA Outreach Coordinator Lorra Lierly.
CASA of Red River serves the counties of Wichita, Archer, Clay and Montague. The induction of the new members is the accumulation of an effort by CASA earlier in the year to raise $10,000 from Montague County, matched by the Priddy Foundation. In the end, the project exceeded the goal at $10,650.
“This past year we have done a very robust campaign to strengthen our services in Montague County and I am so excited to say we are graduating another class from that community,” said CASA of Red River Executive Director Laura Grimsinger.
