2019-2020 Member of the Year
Clara Kiley, CP
Butte County State's Attorney ~ Belle Fourche
"Clara has been SDPA's Librarian for many years.  She maintains recordings of SDPA seminars and other resources available to both members and non-members, including CP exam materials.  She tracks down members when materials aren't turned in on time, and she has many more tasks that I can't imagine in manning the library.  Clara is a "behind-the-scenes" type of person, and doesn't receive enough appreciation for the job she has done faithfully all these years.  Clara is the type of SDPA member we should all strive to emulate - tirelessly serving the organization in whatever capacity we can."
