CASA Pays Tribute to Judge Paul Crowley

On March 20, 2014 Judge Paul Crowley swore into service his last class of new CASA advocates. Judge Crowley will be retiring in July and Columbia Gorge CASA marked the occasion with a gift to honor the vital role he has played in CASA since its inception in the Gorge in 1987.

The gift was a glass starfish made by Nichols Art Glass in The Dalles is a symbolic reference to a well known story by Loren Eiseley about a boy who threw starfish that had washed up onto the beach back into the ocean one by one. In the story, the starfish represent abused & neglected children and the boy represents the collective efforts of Judge Crowley and CASAs to get them back into safe and loving homes as quickly as possible.  

Thank you Judge Crowley for supporting and guiding CASA for the past 27 years!
