A Child's Advocate in Court

New State Administrator

McKinley Whooten, Deputy Director of the NC Administrative Office of the Courts has been acting as the NC GAL Administrator since Jane Volland’s retirement in December 2010. He has done a wonderful job as our Administrator and is ready to get back to work as the AOC Deputy Director. We are happy to announce the selection of Cynthia “Cindy” Bizzell as the new GAL Administrator, effective January 1, 2012.  For nearly three decades, Cindy has been part of the Guardian ad Litem program, first, as a volunteer. She then served as a Regional Administrator and then became the Assistant Administrator for the statewide GAL program. Most recently she has served as the manager for the Organizational Development Division at the NC Administrative Office of the Courts. In this role, she has supported and facilitated GAL’s organizational effectiveness efforts in strategic planning and leadership development.  Cindy has also served as a consultant with the National Court Appointed Special Advocates Association (CASA), in the fields of volunteer training, staff development, and program evaluation. You will have an opportunity to meet Cindy at our Annual Volunteer Appreciation Event at the Mint Museum on April 26th.
