The Beadle County state's attorney in Huron is the new president of a national organization that represents prosecutors from all over the country.
Mike Moore will lead the National District Attorney's Association.
Moore said it's humbling to be picked to lead the roughly 4,000 member-group that includes prosecutors from large and small jurisdictions.
Moore says NDAA lobbies for prosecutors and also provides training and technical research to them.
He takes over the post July 21 at the annual meeting in Denver.
