Global health and human service non-profit system, BCFS, has named Dr. Dearing Garner as the interim executive director for its overseas operation, Children’s Emergency Relief International (CERI). Current executive director Dr. Gary Huckabay is leaving the organization, and Garner will seamlessly resume this role. Garner has been involved with CERI since its founding in 1999, serving as executive director prior to Huckabay’s promotion and having continued serving the organization in a part-time role for the last year.
“Dearing is driven by an unparalleled passion and determination to bring Christ-like compassion to children in difficult circumstances throughout the world,” said Kevin C. Dinnin, chairman of the CERI Board of Directors. “I am grateful to have him return to this post as we search for a new visionary leader for CERI.”
“I am also thankful to Gary for his hard work and service, and wish him God’s best in future pursuits.”
