The LIAM Foundation announced last week that Scottie Welch was no longer on their board of directors.
The LIAM Foundation is a Rockford-based LGBTQ resource center offering support and guidance.
In a press release, the board said that they had decided to move in a different direction and wished Welch well.
“We understand that many of you are connected with Scottie,” the board said. “We encourage and support you to maintain those connections. This is a difficult time of change and transition, but the growth and sustainability of The LIAM Foundation remains our priority.” The board asked for patience during the transition.
