His sponsorship of the KELO AM Crime of the Week and assistancein publicizing Crime Stoppers’ mission were invaluable.


Jim Hunter’s volunteerismbegan at an early age at Sioux Falls Cathedral, and continued until his deathin August of this year.  He served on theCrime Stoppers Board of Directors from September 1993 until December 2009 andwas always the first to step forward when there was a task to be done. He wasactive in many civic organizations in Sioux Falls and Madison and was an avidsupporter of youth athletics.  Jim wasdescribed as having a “servant heart”.


 Harry Swank served on theCrime Stoppers Board from January 2010 until his death September 23, 2011.  He used his retirement to serve others, as hehad his entire career as a member of the United States Armed Forces for 23years and an employee of the US Postal Service for 32 years.  He volunteered assisting the sick and theirfamilies and others in need of support and encouragement.  He was a big part of the success of the CrimeStoppers Shred Event.
