Shaun Clark named district administrator for the 18th Judicial District

Friday, September 8, 2017

CENTENNIAL – The 18th Judicial District (Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln counties) recently appointed Shaun Clark as district administrator, effective Oct. 31, 2017, upon the retirement of Laurie McKager.  

“Shaun has been an integral member of our management team for many years and we are fortunate to have her as our next district administrator,” said Chief Judge Carlos A. Samour, Jr. “She has the experience and talent necessary to be a strong leader for our large and diverse district and I look forward to working closely with her in this new role.”

Clark has been the deputy district administrator for the 18th Judicial District for the past 11 years. Before that, she was the clerk of court for Arapahoe County and a consultant for the National Center for State Courts. Clark studied political science and sociology at the University of Colorado and earned her master’s degree in legal administration from the University of Denver College of Law. 

McKager retires from the Colorado Judicial Department after a 29-year career. During her tenure with the department she was a unit supervisor in Arapahoe County; collections program coordinator, budget and fiscal analyst, and director of financial services for the Office of the State Court Administrator; and district administrator in the 17th Judicial District.

“Laurie’s contributions to the 18th, and state judicial as a whole, are too numerous to list,” Chief Judge Samour said. “Her career-long commitment to our system and advancing the administration of justice will not be forgotten. We will definitely miss her, but wish her the best in retirement.”
