Devereux CBC board chair says goodbye

Port St. Lucie – Devereux Community Based Care Board Chair Steven Murphy bid adieu to fellow board members in November, and then passed the legacy of his four-year leadership to Vice Chair Russell Hamilton.

Murphy thanked the board for giving him the opportunity to lead and for working together to improve a local system that was in a deficit posture in 2013.

“This organization has come a long way,” he said. “We’ve overcome a lot of challenges, and now we’re doing really well.”

Improvements, he said, include financial stability, leadership in statewide decision-making and, most important, performance measures of permanency, safety and well-being for children.

On behalf of staff, Chief Executive Officer Carol Deloach presented Murphy with a plaque of recognition. The next Board meeting is scheduled for January 23, when Mr. Hamilton will begin his tenure as chairman.
