1. How long have you been a CASA board member?

board member Jeff Huber

I’ve been a CASA board member for about one year.

2. What brought you to apply to join the CASA Board of Directors?

I had a high school coach who irrevocably changed my life for the better, so I know what the power of one person can do to change the life of another. That’s what I tried to do during my 37-year coaching career. I had an open-door policy for young people to join my teams and give them the same opportunity that I received. Now retired, I see serving as a CASA board member as a chance to support our amazing CASA volunteers as they serve young people in our community who are experiencing abuse and neglect and are desperately in need of that someone special to help change their lives.

3. Besides being a CASA board member, what do you like to do in your spare time?

I work out, work on my house and my kids’ houses, and am currently writing another book.

4. What do you love the most about volunteering with CASA?

CASA brings hope to these kids, and hope is a powerful, life-changing emotion. I love the CASA slogan “There’s no place like hope”.

5. What’s a hidden talent or unusual fact that most people don’t know about you?

Hmm, I’m a pretty boring person. Maybe that is beyond my coaching life, I have a Ph.D. and taught in several departments at IU (Psychological & Brain Sciences, Counseling, Ed Psych, and Kinesiology), and also served as Director of Education for USA Diving.
