By Lucy Halverson

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) office located in Kennebec is under the direction of District Conservationist Shane Reis effective April 4th.

Reis, a graduate of SDSU, was employed with the South Dakota Association of Conservation Districts (SDACD) as a Resource Management Specialist for the past two years. He worked primarily in conservation offices in Kennebec, Pierre, Philip and Kadoka.

Reis will spend the next year in training, which may require traveling to other NRCS offices around the state. Im excited about the new position and look forward to the challenge ahead of me, stated Reis.
A life long resident of Lyman County, Reis grew up on a ranch south of Oacoma and graduated from Chamberlain High School in 1998. Since I grew up in the eastern part of the county, Im not as familiar with the people further west, added Reis. The DC of a NRCS office provides technical assistance and administers financial assistance to landowners through conservation plans and cost share programs.
