BBBS exec. director retires

By Jelani Yancey

Roy Crenshaw is stepping down as the executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters after more than 10 years. Crenshaw cited reaching his professional goals as his reason for retiring.

“When I accepted this position, I made a promise to bring stability to the executive director and staff positions. With some luck and a very good staff, we have been able to do that,” Crenshaw said. “One of my goals at the time was to become the longest serving executive director in five county region’s history and I was able to do that. And now our staff tenure is averaging almost eight years.”

Crenshaw was a resident of Wabaunsee County for most of his life and accepted the executive director position in 2002, after returning from living and working in Israel.

Crenshaw will start his retirement by traveling to India. Upon his return he will focus on his ranch, Shamrock Farms.
