Dr. Richard Berry has announced his retirement as Cheyenne Youth Alternatives Director effective Sept. 4, 2018.

Current Assistant Director Jay Sullivan will replace Berry as head of Youth Alternatives.

''Dr. Berry is one of our city's greatest treasures. For over three decades he has saved the lives of countless youth and families in our community. Youth
Alternatives is a success story of what works in early intervention with
troubled kids and it's because of his leadership and vision, said Mayor Marian
Orr. I'm pleased he won't be stepping away entirely as his connection to our schools is invaluable. I've had the opportunity to work with Jay as well and
we're fortunate to have him as he is a natural fit to take the reins."

Although he is leaving his position as Director, Berry will remain with the organization as a part-time clinical supervisor. Sullivan has been with Youth Alternatives since 1992.

He is a Cheyenne native and Central High School graduate who holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Administration of Justice from the University of Wyoming.
