Davenport Evans Financial Services lawyer Rita Edwards is saying “Goodbye” to her long commute and “Hello” to retirement! Rita came to Davenport Evans having served as in-house counsel at a local bank. She was a valued member of our Financial Institutions and General Business practice groups and a regular presenter at the annual Davenport Evans Banking Seminar. Outside of her time at the firm, Rita can be found giving back to the community. Her service includes general nonprofit business consulting and support of organizations focused on development and delivery of affordable housing. She has also served on local, state and national boards and committees for Habitat for Humanity, and currently participates in a state-wide affordable housing advocacy group, Homes for South Dakota. She also serves on the Council of Trustees and Board of Governors of the South Dakota State University Foundation, and is a director and past president of Prairie Repertory Theatre, Inc.

While we will miss seeing Rita around the office, Davenport Evans thanks Rita for her service and we wish her a very Happy Retirement!
