CASA for Kids is pleased to honor May’s volunteer of the month, Cat Pierce. May marks Cat’s 4 year anniversary as a CASA. She has served on six cases. Cat returned to college after her children were grown to earn a degree in Sociology. While going to school full time, she worked at Wings of Hope, in the CASA office, and worked as a CASA volunteer. She researched CASA after visiting with a friend about all the programs that exist to rescue animals, and that friend explained what CASA’s purpose is.
Cat feels passionate about spreading awareness in the community about what CASA accomplishes, the empowerment it gives to children, and the voice CASA volunteers are able to give to abused and neglected children.
In 2015, Cat graduated with a degree in Sociology from Oklahoma State, and now works full time as a senior financial adviser at OSU. She and her husband run a cattle ranch outside of Carney. They have three grown sons and daughters-in-law, and four grandchildren.
There are children waiting for a CASA in their life. Mrs. Pierce wants the community to know that the number of children in Payne and Logan counties alone in state custody would be shocking. The next available training is in June. Please visit casaforkids.com or call the office at 405-624-2242.
