Sandy Killion is Gateway’s current Board President. She first became involved in Gateway in 1995 while serving as the Interim Director for Children Can Soar. Her primary role at that time was to facilitate a community assessment process to identify an agency that provided quality programs to both children and families that would be interested in discussing a program merger. As a result of the program merger, Mrs. Killion was asked to serve on the Board of Directors.
As a dedicated Gateway Board member, Mrs. Killion soon became Board President. As Board President, she works with the entire board to provide strategic direction, to support Gateway’s President, Jim Loop, and his staff, to provide financial oversight and accountability, to ensure that Gateway has the resources it needs and to serve as an ambassador for Gateway throughout the community.
“It is a privilege to serve an agency that provides such important services to children and families in need […] Gateway is able to quickly respond because of their highly trained staff, who offers a continuum of programs and services for the entire family [...] [With] more than 100 years of service to our community, as the needs of children and families changed, Gateway responded to meet those needs.”—Sandy Killion
