A Leader In The Community
By joe2brown on April 2015
In 2003, Grayson County was one of the largest counties in the state of Texas without a Children’s Advocacy Center helping to coordinate agencies involved in the investigation of child abuse. CAC’s provide a child-friendly place for young victims of sexual and physical abuse to be interviewed by a trained forensic interviewer and then receive ongoing counseling services. Along with other community leaders, Joe Brown worked to form the Grayson County Children’s Advocacy Center to ensure that child abuse victims and law enforcement had the resources to make our community the best it could be. Mr. Brown was the first president of the board of directors of the Children’s Advocacy Center and continues to serve on the board.
Recognizing the importance of community service, Joe Brown has made a difference for charities throughout the area. He has served as a long-time member and past president of the Sherman Kiwanis Club, helping the club raise money and fund charitable efforts throughout the county. He has mentored children in the Fairview Elementary School mentoring program since its formation in 2009. He serves as board member of the Sherman Education Foundation, assisting in the effort to provide education resources to Sherman public schools. He serves on the executive board of the regional Circle Ten Council of the Boy Scouts of America and as the local fundraising chairman for the Boy Scouts.
