Jo Cruz, director of Family & School Services, and John Taylor, director of our Indiana Behavioral Health Program, recently graduated from the management program, “The Art & Science of Growing, Managing and Coaching People.” Both presented and led discussion on a difficult management scenario before graduating, and, of course, both were stars!
A graduation cookout celebrated the occasion with brats, regular and tofu franks and fried chicken at St. Joe’s Children’s Home. The graduates were served by senior leadership of the participating organizations, St. Joe’s Children’s Home, the Center for Women and Families, Volunteers of America, St. John’s Center, and Family & Children’s Place.
Cruz leads programming at Meyzeek Middle School in Louisville, and Hazelwood Middle and Slate Run Elementary in New Albany, Ind., and Taylor is responsible for a full range of services in five Southern Indiana counties.
