CTC hearts are heavy this week after the unexpected passing of our Deputy Director and bright light, Staci Bowling. Her sister describes her best, “To know her is to love her is an understatement”. Staci stood for all that is right, equal, and loving. She spoke for those who couldn’t. She respected everyone exactly as they are. She also had an unparalleled sense of humor. For over 25 years, she has been a leader in helping children and families in our community; many of which describe her as being the first person help guide them on their journey with their child. CTC is forever grateful for her guiding light and finds peace in knowing that it is bright enough to continue leading our way, even in her painful absence.
