Merle has been an advocate since November 8th, 2013. The reason he decided to become a CASA was because his wife wanted him to have a hobby and he wanted to protect children. Volunteer Coordinator, Lindsay Jones saw something special about him. Merle is funny, intelligent and very outgoing. Lindsay encouraged him to take a case with a large number of children within the sibling group. Merle was hesitant, but decided to do it. He took this case ON!
His Volunteer Supervisor, Tina Hernandez stated that "he has done a remarkable job with his case and has gone above and beyond by volunteering at the children's home and has gotten his wife involved, by working in the cottages, garden and with the children".
Merle is very persistent in turning in his Activity Reports and works very hard on court reporting and is never late, when it comes to his documentation and paperwork.
Merle, the children in your case a blessed by you! Thank you for working tirelessly to help get the children adopted. You are an amazing advocate and we could not do our jobs without you! Keep up the good work!!!!!
