CASA names Schroer Executive Director
Williamson County CAS A (WCCASA) announced the selection of Marianne Schroer as its new executive director.
Schroer begins her new post Sept. 3. She was formerly with the 21st Drug Court, a local organization that works to provide treatment alternatives for non-violent offenders with drug or alcohol addictions in four counties.
With more than 30 years experience as a licensed psychological examiner, Schroer has an extensive background in non-profit work. She has lived in the county for 28 years.
In addition to her professional career, she serves as President of the Battle of Franklin Trust and was past president of the Carnton Association.
She is also on the board of Franklin’s Charge and the advisory board of Project Transformation. She has also invested her time in the Animal Control Task Force, where she served as a committee member. She is a graduate of Leadership Franklin and was the former fundraising chairman of Friends of Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital.
“Marianne possesses a unique set of skills that will only enhance this challenging and critical role. With a background in both the non-profit and counseling sectors, the board believes that she is in the position to quickly make a deep imprint on the community we serve,” said Alex Marks, WCCASA board president and senior vice president of Tower Investments. “We are looking forward to seeing the ripple effects of her work.”
In its last fiscal year alone, WCCASA served more than 300 Williamson County children. As executive director, Schroer will be responsible for continuing to drive the success of the non-profit by providing clear direction for the organization’s forward-looking objectives and strategic goals.
Over the last 20 years, WCCASA has advocated for abused and neglected children in the court system. Through strong leadership and a committed volunteer force, the non-profit has helped thousands of young people find safe and permanent homes.
Schroer has an undergraduate degree in social work and a Master of Arts degree in counseling psychology, and has wielded her skill set in her various leadership roles.
