California native and sports enthusiast Marcus Huerta is a new Child and Adolescent Board member. Prior to moving to Ohio, Huerta was not familiar with the services offered by C&A.
“I love the opportunity to get involved with the services we provide for the youth and the community,” wrote Huerta, who graduated from Tesoro High School in Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif. “Stark County is lucky to have C&A as a resource to help improve the lives of children, youth and families.”
Huerta earned his bachelor’s degree in integrated media and strategic communications from Boise State University, where he played on the lacrosse team. He is currently the marketing and community outreach manager for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
“I became involved in C&A after (board member) Mike Gallina built the bridge between Joe French and I,” wrote Huerta, who will serve on the operations committee.
