INDIANAPOLIS – Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky (PPINK) President and CEO, Betty Cockrum, announced that she will be retiring at the end of the fiscal year. Her last day with the organization will be June 30, 2017.
"I knew when I signed up to lead PPINK nearly fifteen years ago this would be my last significant tour of duty. Words cannot express what an extraordinary experience it's been. It is truly an amazing organization," stated Cockrum. "I now have just over five months to give our great mission all I have to give and I have every intention of doing just that."
The board of directors has named a search committee with members from both Indiana and Kentucky to ensure that the transition to a new CEO is seamless.
