Adair County SB40 Developmental Disability Board Announces June's Spotlight Award Winner!

Adair County SB40 has selected long-time Board member, Tyson Treasure, as the Community Volunteer Spotlight Award Recipient for his service on the Adair County SB40 Board. After eleven years of volunteer services to the Board, Tyson will be leaving his role at the end of June. He was appointed as a Director to the Board of Adair County SB40 by the Adair County Commissioners in July of 2013. Previously, Tyson volunteered in collaboration with John McConnell, another current SB40 Board member, to raise funds for local non-profit organization, Northeast Association for Citizens with Disabilities (NACD), formerly the United Cerebral Palsy chapter in Kirksville. Over the course of many years, they were able to raise thousands of dollars through fundraising activities for NACD. Tyson has been a lifelong advocate for people with disabilities in the Kirksville area.


When Tyson initially applied for appointment to the SB40 Board he stated “I am primarily seeking this position because I believe that I am part of a truly under-represented group in the disabled community, that of the successful disabled professional. I have been blessed with the opportunity to obtain both a B.S. in Computer Science from Truman State University and an M.S. in Computer Information Systems from Missouri State University. I believe that SB40 has a unique opportunity to bridge the gap between success and the extra financial burdens that come with a disability.”


Currently, Tyson works as Software Engineer III with SRC Logistics based in Springfield, Missouri. Tyson has been instrumental in providing direction to the SB40 management team regarding securing IT services and our IT security. He has also provided important critical review of SB40 annual budgeting, financial forecasting and financial variance analysis for several years. During his tenure on the Board, Tyson has served in the capacity of Treasurer and Chair of the Accountability and Financial Committee of the Board.


Julie Atchley, Adair SB40 Accountant stated, “Through his knowledge and expertise, Tyson’s contributions to the Finance Committee and the Board of Directors has been invaluable. Tyson has both an attention to detail and the ability to see the full picture. This has been instrumental in guiding our organization through our financial management decisions.” Crystal Aminirad, Executive Director added, “Tyson’s experience in information systems management has also helped Adair SB40 to operate efficiently. Tyson has demonstrated that people with disabilities are able and willing to offer essential services to their community, and that our community is a better place to live because of their dedication to that vision. We are deeply grateful for the time and attention that Tyson has offered to our organization over these last eleven years. He will be deeply missed.”


Tyson lives in Kirksville with his wife Erin and son Adam. He enjoys spending time with his family, including his parents, both at home and in his community.
