YUKON, Oklahoma – Krystle Lane Ramirez, executive director of Canadian County Court-Appointed Special Advocates, Inc., will be the Canadian County Democrats’ first speaker of the year at 7 p.m. on Monday, January 11.

The Democrats’ meeting is free and open to the public at the Yukon Police Department 100 S. Ranchwood. Map: http://mapq.st/KvT2iO.

CASA volunteers represent the best interests of abused and neglected children who are wards of the juvenile court. CASAs are trained to research cases, talk to children and others, advocate for needed services and submit written recommendations to courts.

Canadian County CASA was established in 2000 and currently needs volunteers.

“I am excited to use my past experiences to help grow an organization that helps the abused and neglected children of Canadian County” Ramirez said.

Ramirez holds a bachelor’s of arts in sociology, a master’s of arts in human relations and is in the last semester of her Ph.D. program in educational studies at the University of Oklahoma.

She was previously the director of the division of adult education at Bacone College in Muskogee.

When Ramirez isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her husband, her identical twin sister and her mom.

She ministers through her church by helping graduating seniors with ACT preparation and college admissions efforts.

The Canadian County Democrats regularly meet at 7 p.m. on the second Monday of each month, except December, at the Yukon Police Department. For more information, phone 405-354-3189.
