Christine Huff, Business Owner / Financial Professional

Her work in this field first exposed her to the foster care system, where she began education work with both children and administration within this system. Christine also met Ryan, her husband and native of Bellville, at Texas A&M. She and Ryan eventually made their way back to Bellville, where they adopted three boys in 2015. Christine joined the CASA Board of Directors in 2017. Apart from her work with CASA, Christine invests in her community as a financial professional and as co-owner of Huff Brewing Company.


Walter Smith

Mr. Smith is a native Texan, living in the Houston region since 1971 when he began his studies at Rice University.  He holds a BS degree in Civil Engineering and owns a civil engineering and land surveying firm headquartered in Tomball. He is married with seven children and soon to be sixteen grandchildren.  In 2012 he and his wife, Toye, moved from Spring to Waller County, near Hempstead.  He has experienced the blessings of the CASA program and was interested in becoming a member of the Board when approached in 2016.  As a representative from Waller County, he is trying to spread the message of the good things that CASA does and recruit both volunteers and future board members.


A special thank you to our past Board Members for their time and service!
