|After four and a half years of service with the Knox County Child Advocacy Center their Executive Director is stepping down.
Becky Rossman is leaving the Advocacy center after the fundraising gala this weekend to take a job closer to home.
She tells WGIL she had no intention of leaving but when the opportunity came up it just fit her family needs so well she couldn't pass.
"I wasn't really looking, I kind of just stumbled upon this position," says Rossman. "I will be Executive Director of the Neighborhood House in Peoria and they have a lot of wonderful programs and I thought it would be something I'd be interested in doing. My children are starting to get more active into extra curricular activities and it makes it kind of hard being that far away and I work a lot of evening and weekend hours so I'm hoping to have more time with my children in the new job."
Rossman says it was a very hard decision to make and she'll miss all the kids and people she's worked with over the last four and a half years.
Tourism Director Judy Guenseth will be taking over April 12th, in a story broken last week by WGIL.
The Knox County Child Advocacy Center serves Knox, Warren and Henderson Counties.
