JESSE CORUM IV IS REMEMBERED

He ensured that his support of Windham County youth would outlive him.

In June, the organization's longest-standing board member, Jesse Corum IV lost his fight with pancreatic cancer after a six-month battle.

 "We mourn Jesse's death," stated Barbara Gentry, Youth Services' board president at the time. "Jesse's passing is a tremendous loss for his family, our community and Youth Services. We are indebted to his kindness and fortunate as an organization to benefit from his lasting contributions." 

As a founding Legacy Club member, Jesse Corum ensured that his support of Windham County youth would outlive him by making Youth Services a beneficiary in his will. He also made a leadership gift to its Endowment Fund. 

Explaining his reasons for providing for the future of Youth Services, Jesse asked, "If you can keep on giving after you're gone, why not help the one aspect of a society that can help ensure it has a positive future — its youth?"

Youth Services Parners Artists and Youth to Renovate Harmony Parking Lot Mural

Youth Services is undertaking a renovation of their wall mural in Harmony Parking Lot by partnering with area artists this fall.  The popular book motif will remain, but instead be rendered as a “visual library of artist’s websites,” according to organizers.

“Each book in the mural will showcase the talents and website of a working visual artist from Windham County, explained Youth Services’ Karen Cribari, who together with muralist Scot Borofsky have stewarded this project through the town of Brattleboro’s approval process.  “Because we also want area youth to benefit, preference will be given to artists who agree to mentor youth during the process."

The original bookcase was executed in 2007 over the course of a week by youth working with community members on a design by graphic artist Chris Grotke, who had won the community-wide competition held by Youth Services.
