A local judge has been reappointed to the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board by Gov. Matt Bevin.
Hardin District Judge Kimberly Winkenhofer Shumate of Radcliff was one of nine appointees announced Friday in a release from the governor’s office.
The board, established in 1977, is a federally mandated state advisory group on juvenile justice. Shumate has served on the board since 2015 and her new term expires September 2021.
A graduate of Fort Knox High School, Western Kentucky University and Vanderbilt Law School, she is a candidate for re-election for the local judgeship this year.
Edward Palmer, a Radcliff minister and city council member, serves on the same state advisory board.
