David LePere - Member - NATSAP Board of DirectorsI am very pleased and proud to announce that CHEROKEE CREEK BOYS SCHOOL’S Executive Director, David LePere, has been elected to the Board of Directors for the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP).

NATSAP was created in January of 1999 to serve as a national resource for programs and professionals, acting as an advocate and resource for innovative organizations dedicated to the effective care and education of struggling young people and their families.

NATSAPMembers include therapeutic schools, residential treatment programs, wilderness therapy programs, outdoor therapeutic programs, young adult programs and home-based residential programs. All are working through NATSAP to make sure our industry provides the highest quality services to the young people and families they serve.

Until his recent selection for the Board, David served for two years as the chair of NATSAP’s Best Practices committee and served on the committee a total of 4 years. He has been attending NATSAP national conferences since 2004 and has been a presenter at NATSAP’s national and regional conferences, collaborating with other programs to bring relevant ideas and conversations to conference attendees.

Says David, “As always, NATSAP has an ever-increasing responsibility to bring awareness of our schools and programs to a larger audience. The need for therapeutic services, at the highest level of quality is only increasing, and NATSAP is positioned to help its members continuously improve.”

Congratulations, David, from the CCBS Board and all members of our staff! We are so proud of this recognition of your leadership in our field, and we’re so proud to call you “ours!”
