The Casa Grande Board of Directors has named Bob Shogren as its new Executive Director.
A longtime resident of Pinal County, living that past 14 years in Casa Grande, Shogren began his career as an educator, school district administrator and community organizer in the San Manuel area.
Shogren recently finished 34 years of public service in state government serving the governor the last 13 years in the Office of Youth, Faith & Families Division. He has worked at both the state and national level in service and volunteerism. He left his mark leading the expansion of the AmeriCorps programing and initiated the Arizona Service Enterprise Initiative.
Board President Donna McBride said the Board of Directors is extremely pleased to have someone of such high caliber and knowledge join their team.
“The community of Casa Grande is lucky that Bob was ready to bring his skills and experience back to his own community,” she said. “He will be a natural fit.”
According to Shogren, “I am inspired by the long history of CGA, Inc. and how the Alliance has served the Casa Grande area and positively impacted youth and families for over 30 years. I look forward to the opportunity to continue to provide and expand the exceptional programs to our community.”
