Kelly Cronin's Resignation

7/28/2014 by sarah

Dear CYSA Members:


I became aware of Kelly Cronin’s resignation form Waterbury Youth Services just last week myself, and though initially surprised, I realize that Kelly’s devotion to the youth and families of Waterbury is simply a reflection of how she felt about and valued her own family. The city and the residents of Waterbury have been lucky to have her as a part of their lives for over 30 years, giving 110% everyday of her career.


Kelly has every reason to be proud of the success of the Waterbury Youth Services System, because she is responsible for a great deal of its success. I know that she valued the WYSS Board and her staff immensely, and has left the agency with well-trained, and dedicated people to try and help fill some very big (and often tall and colorful) shoes! I am sure that Jackie Caulfield will do a great job as the interim director, as she has been wonderful to work with as well.


I have worked with Kelly over the past 18 years as a YSB Director, and the past 10 years as a member and officer of the CYSA Board, and I have looked to her for advice often, always with trust and admiration. I have a feeling we have not seen the last of her working with kids and families, and I for one will be grateful to keep her on my team!
