A Fond Farewell To Five Outstanding Board Members

Within the past quarter several amazing Board Members' terms came to an end. Each of these individuals have left a positive impact and legacy within our organization. We are deeply grateful for their service and passion about our mission. 

Joan Cervisi: As our past Board president Joan helped lead our organization through a period of significant growth and change. Under her leadership we refined our strategic plan, implemented new programs, and paved a path for the Board to engage in new and exciting ways. Joan was also a recent recipient of our Outstanding Volunteer Award. 

Randy Doucet: As a certified mediator and pro-tem judge Randy brought a unique and valuable perspective to our Board. He was instrumental in helping us establish family mediation services for the Lummi Tribal Court, and helped to develop our business and marketing plan. 

Jacie DeLaruelle: With a passion for youth, Jacie has quietly and consistently supported the growth of our youth program. She has been the Board champion for our our Youth Peaceful Poetry Contest, and brought creative fundraising opportunities to our organization. 

N.F. Jackson: As the former Superior Court Administrator, N.F. brought a wealth of historical knowledge and vision for the future to our organization. He not only helped develop myriad systems for our organization, but served as a critical support to us as we launched our new Supervised Visitation program, ensuring that parents and kids will continue to stay connected in Whatcom County. 

Charmie Gilcrease: Charmie's business experience and aptitude for technology, budgets, and planning helped steer the WDRC in meaningful ways. Her helpful perspective contributed positively to our growth.
