An attorney from Costa Mesa was recently elected president of the Orange County Child Abuse Prevention Center's board of directors.
Jane Grillot Kearl, who said she was looking for a way to give back to the community, began working with the organization three years ago after registering with the Orange County Volunteer Center.
The center is a nonprofit organization that trains and supervises volunteers to work in homes where children are at risk of abuse and neglect.
Kearl has also been involved in developing programs and fund-raising initiatives for the center.
