Shawn D. Reese has been promoted from office manager for the County Commissioners to Carroll County clerk.
Mrs. Reese was sworn in to the office Wednesday by Carroll Circuit Court Clerk Larry W. Shipley.
The commissioners had expressed their intent to give Mrs. Reese the job last year, but it could not be official until she moved to Carroll County, she said.
The former Frederick County resident now lives in Middleburg.
She replaced Robert A. "Max" Bair in the clerk's job. He is the commissioners' executive assistant and director of administrative services.
