CASA Volunteer Recruitment and Outreach Coordinator, Maureen Conley sharing CASA’s mission with Learning Showcase guests
The Learning Showcase is a celebration of “Learning, Transformation, and Success.” The event celebrates the innovative work of students, faculty, alumni, nonprofit, government and community partners through Ohio and beyond.
The event more than doubled it’s attendance in year two, welcoming over 300 guests. CASA is thankful to have been invited to participate and have the opportunity to share our message and mission: To provide a powerful and consistent adult voice, in court, for abused and neglected children.
Dr. Karen Miner-Romanoff is a key developer of the successful Franklin University Learning Showcase. Dr. Miner-Romanoff, is the Dean of the College of Health and Public Administration and Department Chair of Criminal Justice Administration; her field of research in youth awareness and the justice system dovetails with CASA concerns and topics. Unfortunately, many children who do not have a CASA Guardian become a statistic – the negative kind.
