New Court Appointed Special Advocates Sworn In At Snow Hill Courthouse

Three new Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) were sworn in during a special ceremony at Snow Hill Courthouse last week. CASA volunteers are specially trained, sworn in by a judge, and will stand up for the rights of the child whom they are assigned until they are placed in permanent home. Pictured, from left, are Cynthia Ilardi, volunteer coordinator, Lower Shore CASA; Master Peggy Kent; Brigitte Saulsbury, director, Lower Shore CASA; Judge Brian Shockley; Rosalind Becton, CASA; Patricia Hammond, CASA; Phyllis Brodsky, CASA; and Pete Buesgens, director, Department of Social Services.
