Executive Director Retiring

After more than 22 years as the Executive Director of the Fannin County Children’s Center, Sandy Barber is retiring.  Including her prior experience at North Texas Youth Connection, Barber has worked in the nonprofit and child welfare field for more than 31 years.

When Barber stepped into the leadership role at the Children’s Center, the nonprofit had four employees and an annual operating budget of about $150,000.  Under her leadership, the agency has grown to nine employees and expanded services to kids from hard places.

“While the board is disappointed to lose Sandy, we fully support her decision to begin the next phase of her life journey,” said Bill Wilson, Board President.  “Sandy has graciously agreed to a long notice period while we search for a replacement and she will actively support the transition, once a replacement is hired.”

Barber plans to remain active in the community and looks forward to serving in different roles.

“It has been my joy and honor to do this work for so long,” said Barber.  “I am committed to doing my part to make sure the transition is smooth as possible.”
