The Honorable Judge Otipoby-Herbert and Becky Hightower.

The Tonkawa Tribe of Oklahoma Tribal Court and CASA of Kay and Noble Counties are working together to support the best interest of children in the Tonkawa Tribal Court System. Recently, The Honorable Judge Otipoby-Herbert welcomed Becky Hightower as the newest CASA Advocate for the Tonkawa Tribe.

CASA of Kay and Noble Counties provides CASA Advocates to speak for abused and neglect children in the 8th judicial district, Kay and Noble Counties as well as the Tonkawa Tribal Court. CASA Advocates are appointed by the Judge overseeing cases to serve more than 200 local children in Kay and Noble Counties. These children are in need of a voice to advocate for them in the court system.

If you have as little as five hours a month, you can make a difference in the life of an abused and neglected child.

Contact Sharon Mocabee-Sisco, Program Director, at (580) 762-8341 or find more information at Kaynoblecasa.org.
