Elizabeth Shearburn, court administrator for the Crawford County Circuit Clerk’s Office, has been accepted into the Arkansas Certified Court Manager Program.

The program is offered by the Administrative Office of the Courts through the National Center for State Courts Institute for Court Managers.

Crawford County Circuit Clerk Sharon Blount-Baker said Shearburn will be among a group of select clerks, who through their pursuit of professional development, have become nationally certified as court managers.

Shearburn is the first deputy of a circuit clerk to be accepted into the three-year program, Blount-Baker said.
