Gov. Gary Herbert has appointed Sharon S. Sipes to fill a vacancy on the 2nd District Juvenile Court bench.
"Sharon is a prime example of the power of determination, hard work, and the importance of education. She began her working career in a print shop and retail, and is now being appointed as a judge," said Herbert in a Tuesday press release. "Having dedicated her legal career to working in child welfare and the juvenile court system, I'm honored to appoint her to serve as a judge."
"I am humbled and proud that Governor Herbert finds me deserving of his trust... ," said Sipes in the press release. "I look forward to joining the other dedicated jurists in the juvenile courts across this state who commit themselves to serving our children and families."
