South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard has appointed a Wagner woman to the state's Board of Pardons and Paroles.
The Rev. Patricia White Horse-Carda will fill the vacancy created by a resignation earlier this year in the nine-member board.
White Horse-Carda has served the Diocese of South Dakota as an Episcopal priest since 2010. She previously spent 20 years working as a teacher and administrator at the Wagner Community School.
Her term in the state board will end in January 2015.
The board conducts hearings and acts on inmate requests for parole. It also makes recommendations to the governor when inmates request clemency.
