Bob Watt named trustee emeritus of Casey Family Programs

The Board of Trustees of Casey Family Programs has named Bob Watt trustee emeritus for his meritorious contributions as trustee and chair during his tenure with the Board.

Watt joined the Board in 2008 and became Board chair in 2013. He retired at the end of May 2016. During his tenure, Casey Family Programs worked to increase Communities of Hope across the country, to safely reduce the number of youth in foster care and to expand the number of tribal relationships in formal consulting agreements. Additionally, Watt helped oversee the integration of advancing knowledge about brain science and trauma into the foundation’s work and advocacy.

The trustee emeritus designation is an honorary one bestowed for distinctive service. It provides opportunities for the former trustee to be invited to Board meetings and special Casey events, and to undertake special assignments as requested, although no longer as an active voting member of the Board.

The Board congratulates Bob Watt on this designation and greatly appreciates his service in support of children and families across America.
