On November 21, The Crossroads Center Board of Trustees officially welcomed Jamahal C. Boyd, Sr. as only the third Chief Executive Officer of the agency in almost 70 years. The welcome event was held at Fueled Collective in Rookwood and hosted VIP’s and friends of the agency from all over the region. Co-leaders from the fields of behavioral/mental health and addiction, city and government officials, along with business leaders from the community showed up to welcome Jamahal and show their support for the work of The Crossroads Center.
The evening was highlighted by an inspiring introduction from the Chair of The Crossroads Center's Board of Trustees, Dr. Jeannette Taylor followed by a time for Mr. Boyd to share his thanks and some vision for the future of the organization. Following the official remarks, guests stayed to enjoy the refreshments and networked with each other.
In a thank you note to attendees, Mr. Boyd said, “It is with great sincerity that I thank you for your support, love, encouragement and well wishes of me in my new role as CEO of The Crossroads Center. If you attended or were there in spirit, your love was felt and greatly appreciated. As we continue on our journey of Change & Growth, I will continue to solicit that love, support, encouragement and advocacy as we seek to deliver the mission of The Crossroads Center to the community in need of our services as we seek to not only address, but eliminate addiction and the struggles faced with substance abuse and mental/behavioral health challenges. Thank you again for partnering with me, our team, Board of Trustees and other stakeholders on our journey of "Helping People Turn Their Lives Around".
