ADVOCATE OF THE MONTH - MARCH
Currently in her fourth year as a Volunteer Advocate, Ravonda is more determined and dedicated than ever. For the past year, Ravonda has been working with a teen boy placed in a treatment center in Dallas. This exceptionally bright young man has autism, and attends school with teachers and courses designed to compliment his strengths and learning style.
Ravonda has never allowed distance or her kiddo's medical issues get in the way of her fierce advocacy. Now that he is nearing the age of 18, Ravonda is working harder than ever to locate the best adult placement facility to continue his care.
A retired educator, Ravonda is currently working three CASA cases, and loves the challenges and rewards they bring. She also attends continuing education seminars whenever possible, and it was at an Amarillo College Criminal Justice Program course that we were able to present her with this award.
Thank you, Ravonda, for everything you bring to CASA- we are certainly blessed by your time and talent!
