GREENVILLE--Because the Darke County Community has been very fortunate to have had such a dedicated and loyal citizen as Duane Shields, the Darke County Commissioners offered a Letter of Appreciation and proclaimed January 16, 2013 as a “Day of Appreciation” for Shields.
The proclamation states Sheilds has served on many boards and committees through the years, some of which include the Darke, Miami, Preble, Shelby Counties Workforce Policy Board (8 years); the Darke County Farmers Union representative as a member of the Board through organized labor; has represented the Policy Board by serving on the Darke, Miami, Preble, Shelby County Youth Council; and Duane has dedicated his time and effort in making our workforce stronger with his input in policy approvals as it relates to workforce development programs under the Workforce Investment Act.
Shields has retired after teaching school for 35 years and today, his passion continues to help the youth to make the best of their efforts.
Shields was honored for his dedication in serving our communities.
