CCI Executive Director Receives Honor from Storey County

Storey County Commissioners Issue RESOLUTION Honoring CCI Executive Director Shaun Griffin for his 26 years of service

At the August 15, 2017 meeting of the Storey County Commissioners, CCI Executive Director Shaun T.  Griffin was honored by a resolution from the county in honor of his 26 years of service to the community and to the state of Nevada.

Shaun co-founded Community Chest in 1991 with his wife, Deborah Loesch-Griffin to build a stronger community and address the struggles of our most vulnerable citizens.

Shaun leaves an incredible legacy of service, commitment, community, and love for his fellow citizens during his tenure as CCI’s Executive Director. His vision has created an incredibly strong organization with an amazing, passionate staff dedicated to carrying out the mission and principles of Community Chest. One of his greatest accomplishments was to bring the vision of a youth and family resource center to life: The Storey County Youth and Community Resource Center broke ground in 2014, and will more than double in size with the Phase 2 expansion scheduled for completion in 2017.

The Storey County and surrounding communities, the citizens of Nevada, and the staff of CCI are grateful for Shaun’s dedication and service to making our state a better place for all citizens, and honoring the dignity of those we serve. Mere thank yous seem inadequate for the immense influence, mentorship, and support that Shaun has provided as a leader. The CCI Staff will continue to carry on the torch of social justice and continue your legacy of service. Ten fe, Shaun!
