TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas Senate has honored the leader of the chamber's staff of clerks, who's planning to retire in December after 22 years in the job.
Senators approved a resolution for Secretary Pat Saville (SUH'-vil) and held a reception for her outside the chamber. Saville is longest serving secretary of the Senate in state history.
The resolution praised Saville's dedication. It noted that she served as president of the American Society of Legislative Clerks and Secretaries in 2000 and 2001 and received its staff achievement award in 2007.
The 69-year-old Saville joined the Legislature's staff in 1975 as a secretary to House members and later served as a secretary and administrative assistant to three legislative leaders. She became secretary of the Senate in December 1990.
