Community Counseling Center Gary Howard, Jr. has been selected to serve on the Center’s Foundation Board of Directors. 

     Howard graduated from Southeast Missouri State University with a Bachelor’s degree in 1999.  Howard currently serves as Market President for U.S. Bank for the Cape Girardeau, Jackson, Sikeston, Marble Hill, Perryville and Ste. Genevieve markets.  Howard has been with U.S. Bank since 2011.

     Howard is very active in community organizations.  He is a board member of the Cape Girardeau Chamber of Commerce, Southeast Missouri State University River Campus Art Building Task Force, Old Town Cape, Rotary, and LaCroix church.

     Howard is a Sikeston, Mo. native.  He and his wife Jamie have one child and reside in Cape Girardeau.

     Howard states:  “I am honored to be appointed to the Community Counseling Center Foundation Board.  My wife and I have a keen awareness of the value of the need for mental health services.  My wife Jamie is a counselor at Scott City R1 elementary school.  We have a service dog which is a partner with her in her work with her “school” kids.  It is amazing what a child will share with a dog companion but not a human which opens the door for help.”

     Foundation Executive Director Mary Burton stated, “Our organization is growing at a fast pace. With the addition of Cottonwood Treatment Center in 2016, the Foundation has an even greater responsibility in providing the needed support for our client’s treatments and services, and most markedly to the children that need our help.”

     Community Counseling Center Board President Dale Rauh added, “We are excited to have Gary join our Foundation board.  He has the experience and skills that will help us as we grow as an organization.  Gary will serve as a strong advocate for the children that we serve throughout our region.”

     Community Counseling Center is a not-for-profit comprehensive behavioral health and prevention organization which provides programs and services to every person in need in the five-county region of Bollinger, Cape Girardeau, Madison, Perry, Ste. Genevieve.

     Community Counseling Center Foundation’s mission is to cultivate relationships and build awareness within our five-county region in order to generate financial and other resources that support the Center’s capacity to save lives and promote mental wellbeing.
