Northeast, AR – July 13, 2016 – The Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program of the 2nd Judicial District, now the second largest in Arkansas, has brought Jeremy Irvin on board to assist with recruiting volunteers for the growing non-profit agency. Irvin will be responsible for the recruiting, training, and coaching of volunteers in the district’s rural counties.
“For a young man, Jeremy brings a lifetime of unique and useful background that he has already demonstrated in his position as a CASA Volunteer with a family of preteens,” said Amanda Frankenberger, CASA Volunteer Coordinator and Irvin’s new supervisor. “His own experiences add insight and a reality that our volunteers and our families and children can relate to and believe in.”
Irvin attended Black River Technical College and has held positions with local area agriculture, technology, and service companies. He will continue a youth program he developed with Greene County Tech in conjunction with Crossfit Cathal as the leader and mentor of the Motivated Futures Program. The program uses fitness and fun to teach core principals of ethics, integrity and positivity. Irvin’s wife Tonya has also joined the local CASA organization as a volunteer.
