Kenda Culpepper, Rockwall County’s district attorney, took office as the Texas District & County Attorneys Association’s 82nd president.

The non-profit organization, which serves Texas prosecutors and their staffs, produces CLE courses, provides technical assistance to the prosecution community and criminal justice agencies, and serves as a liaison between prosecutors and other organizations in administering criminal justice. TDCAA represents over 6,000 prosecutors, investigators, and personnel in Texas.

“I am humbled to have been elected by my peers across Texas and so proud to represent the thousands of prosecutors, investigators, and other personnel who work in offices from Houston to El Paso and the Panhandle to the southern border,” Culpepper said in an article published in the Blue Ribbon News. “I take very seriously the responsibility of leading this organization—an organization manned by public servants who are vested with prosecuting the worst of the worst and helping to keep our communities safe. I am truly inspired by so many of my colleagues and look forward to collaborating with them to further the interest of justice across our great state.”

Culpepper also serves on the Texas Bar College Board of Directors as well as leadership teams combating issues such as family violence and child abuse. She is the president of the board of directors of the Children’s Advocacy Center for Rockwall County.
