Brenda Pipes – June 2020
We are shining our CASA spotlight on Brenda Pipes this month! A few words from her on why she is a CASA volunteer, “I became a CASA Volunteer because I wanted to make a positive impact in children lives. I believe every child is special and deserves love, security and a safe environment in which to grow, dream and succeed in life no matter the circumstances.”
Brenda retired 6 years ago from the Education field and we are thrilled she decided to join the CASA team. Something else that keeps her busy besides CASA is dabbling in genealogy research. She has 2 children and 1 granddaughter, and they enjoy having family skyping sessions since living in different states. When Brenda tells me fun stories about her granddaughter, her face lights up; one of her recent skype stories was about hula hooping with her granddaughter for her birthday! Brenda said, “my hula loop even lights up”. Brenda has a fun and caring heart, which is something I appreciate about her.
Brenda swore-in as a CASA volunteer November 2018. She has been assigned to her first case since she was sworn in and has worked diligently to be sure the children on her case have the educational tools they need to succeed. With all the hardships of COVID, Brenda has made sure the children continue learning by reading to them over the phone and that they have summer camp plans.
Thank you, Brenda, for your diligent work throughout this case, for continuously being open to learning new things, and of course, being a consistent positive person in these children’s lives!
