Rebecca “Becky” Ruffner is about to start a new chapter in her life.

As she turns the page, the 72-year-old founder and executive director of Prevent Child Abuse Arizona, who will retire her post on Dec. 31, is confident the agency’s new leader is poised and ready for the task.

The agency on Wednesday announced the promotion of Training Director Claire Louge to Ruffner’s role upon her retirement.

Since 2014, Louge has served as an agency trainer, both for local and statewide events.
