At its national conference in St. Louis earlier this month, National CASA/GAL Association named Kim Colby Davis as the 2023 Kappa Alpha Theta Program Director of the Year.
Kim's strategic planning expertise and innovative program development at CASA of Santa Barbara County have resulted in remarkable achievements. Under her leadership, the CASA program experienced 340% growth, expanding its reach from serving 125 children to supporting more than 500 children annually.
In the last five years, CASA of Santa Barbara County has been chosen as the "Best Place to Volunteer," "Best Place to Work," "Nonprofit of the Year," "Best Social Media Presence," and was recognized by the local chamber of commerce chairman as an outstanding organization.
Kim has been a strong leader and integral partner on the national level as she has served as the chair of the Suburban Leadership Council and a member of the National Leadership Council, where she served as liaison to the National CASA/GAL Board of Trustees.
When Kappa Alpha Theta adopted the National CASA/GAL Association as its philanthropy in 1989, it also elected to recognize the hard work of CASA/GAL program directors. The recipient of this award is someone who has taken significant actions to establish or expand a CASA/GAL program.
