CASA Volunteer Spotlight: Meet Ken KeheEmily Hoak
“Being a CASA gives me a sense of purpose in my retirement.”
Ken Kehe finished CASA training last December and received his first assignment shortly after that. On a personal note, he’s been married 43 years and has three grown children and one grandchild.
He taught high school science, mostly Biology and Chemistry, for 42 years in NW Indiana public schools. For 8 years he developed and taught classes for gifted and talented grade school children at Purdue North Central’s Super Saturday and Super Summer sessions. Ken also worked in an environmental laboratory one summer.
Ken decided to become a CASA because he missed working with children and expressed, “Being a CASA gives me a sense of purpose in my retirement.”
He is hopeful that his volunteering with CASA makes a difference in the lives of children who are part of the court system by no fault of their own.
Thank you, Ken!
In honor of Rose Butler who was a CASA volunteer, and who further supported the mission of CASA as a staff member supervising and mentoring many of our volunteers, we are featuring one CASA volunteer each month who is making a difference in the lives of children in Porter County.
