Sandra Teter Celebrates 20-Year Anniversary as a CASA Volunteer
For 20 years Sandra Teter has been a Dallas CASA volunteer. She's served 47 children on 24 different cases and is known at Dallas CASA for her bridge-building and for putting both adults and children at ease.
"I've always been a compassionate person but what's been wonderful about CASA is it's given me a voice," she said. "I've learned you have to speak out for what's right. You can't leave it to other people. People get afraid of volunteering at places like CASA because they worry about seeing things they don't want to see. But the truth is these situations happen whether we see them or not."
In 2017 the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers recognized Sandra wth the Liberty Bell Award, which honors a non-lawyer who "stimulates a deeper sense of individual responsibility so that citizens recognize their duties and rights."
Thank you Sandra for 20 years of service to abused children!
