The Indiana Supreme Court’s state office of Court Appointed Special Advocates honored Ronda Moyers of Howard County as Volunteer of the Year at the 15th annual GAL/CASA conference. She was nominated by a child who she advocated for while the child was in foster care.
Also recognized was the Fraternal Order of Eagles Auxiliary for its support in raising approximately $80,000. The money will be used to increase public awareness about CASA and recruit more volunteers. Bill Stanczykiewicz of the Indiana Youth Institute was recognized for IYI’s partnership in raising awareness about the need for CASA volunteers. As a result of IYI’s support, the Supreme Court has received a dramatic increase in the number of people interested in volunteering which has increased the number of children with advocates.
