DeWitt County CASA volunteers ready

Three new volunteers sworn in October 13


CLINTON — Three DeWitt County residents were sworn in as Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers on Wednesday, Oct. 13 by Judge Karle Koritz.

CASAs are trained volunteers who advocate for the best interest of children who have been abused or neglected as well as children who are going through Termination of Parental Rights (TPR) cases and sometimes in adoption proceedings.

The CASA program is new to DeWitt County and Koritz thanked local residents Rhett Hillard, Elizabeth Woodworth and Katherine Rothfas-Stroup for volunteering.

“Thank you for your service,” said Koritz. “It’s not a small commitment.”
