Jeff Verosky

Executive Director

Jeff Verosky was born in Braddock, Pennsylvania and moved to Texas in 1980 when his dad was transferred in his job to Austin. Jeff lived in Austin and El Paso before going off to college. He graduated from Coronado HS in El Paso, Texas in 1987. He then graduated from Texas A&M University in 1991 with a Bachelors of Science in Meteorology.

After graduation, Jeff worked as a meteorologist for 4 years doing international weather and wave reports for ships and oil platforms for Weather Research Center, then doing international weather and flight plans for corporate aircraft for Baseops International in Houston. While working as a meteorologist, on his days off, he started working at schools giving weather presentations, mentoring kids, and substitute teaching. This is when he realized he enjoyed working with kids.

Mr. Verosky then moved into teaching middle school science and math from 1995 till 2004 at Waller Jr. High School in Waller, Texas. During this time he was the science department head, along with being the school’s athletic coordinator. Coaching was also part of his duties, as he coached MS football and track along with serving as the HS head wrestling coach. He is proud of many accomplishments during this time, such as being a two time recipient of the Gulf Coast Area Coaches Sportsmanship Award along with coaching 3 state wrestling champions.

In 2003, Mr. Verosky graduated from Prairie View A&M University with a Master of Arts in Educational Administration. He worked as an Assistant Principal at Waller Jr. High School from 2004 through 2005, and served as Assistant Principal/Athletic Director at Weld Central High School in Keenesburg, Colorado from 2005 till 2008. In 2008, Jeff was named the Principal at East Grand Middle School in Granby, Colorado. He worked in this position until 2011 when his family moved to Wyoming. In Wyoming, he has worked as Principal at Greybull Middle School in Greybull and Wind River Middle School in Pavillion before becoming the Executive Director for Fremont County Group Homes in 2014.

Mr. Verosky's biggest interest is his family, which includes his wife, Andrea, his three daughters, Jessica, Victoria, and Alexandra, and his grand-daughter Avery. Andrea is currently the Principal at Aspen Park Elementary School, and has recently been the name at the new Willow Creek Elementary School in Riverton.

Jeff loves spending time with his wife and daughters. He enjoys being outdoors; hiking, bike riding, playing tennis and skiing along with working in the yard around the house. His family also enjoys going to and being involved at First Baptist Church in Riverton.

Mr. Verosky loves working with children, and is wanting to make any child who needs to spend time in our facility have their stay as pleasant and fulfilling as possible.


Betty Porter

Program Director

I was raised in Riverton Wyoming and graduated from Riverton High School. I have two degrees in health care from CWC, and am graduating with a degree of Arts in Psychology. I plan to further my education and complete my master’s degree. I am always looking for ways to further my education and expand my knowledge. I live on the same family farm that has been in my family for six generations. I have three amazing daughters Courtney, Chelsey, and Mikayla. I have one grandson, Gavyn Eric and a granddaughter on the way. I have been involved with the youth of Fremont County as an active 4-H Leader for over 30 years and I am a lifetime FFA Alumni member. In my spare time I enjoy working with livestock, farming, camping, and fishing. I truly enjoy my position as Program Director for the Fremont Group Home. Watching the youth chose positive changes and knowing I am a small part of it is such a gratifying endeavor. Seeing them build self-confidence and gain the courage to turn their situation around is encouraging for them and inspiring for myself. It is not only beneficial but extremely rewarding. I strongly believe the youth of today are the future of tomorrow.

Gloria Leadbetter

Office Manager

Gloria Leadbetter has been our Office Manager since 2009. She retired from the City of Riverton in 2008, but after a year of "house-wifeing" decided she needed more challenge and took the job here. Gloria has been married to her wonderful husband, Cary since 1969. He is a retired school bus driver and a former bus driver for the Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps. Cary and Gloria have one daughter, Jennifer, who lives in Colorado. They moved to Riverton from California in 1981 and say it’s the best move they ever made. Gloria likes to crochet, sing, perform in community musicals, and especially read, read, read. She has a cat (Miranda Jane) who is 3 years old and a dog (Lacy) who was rescued from the animal shelter in 2005 – we think she’s about 12 years old. "Even though I don’t work directly with the youth, I enjoy getting to know them. The people I work with are wonderful, fun and caring people. I am so glad that I am part of the Group Home family."
