Tears of pride welled in Peggy Fischer's eyes Wednesday when she realized her son would likely be recognized in the history books.
Attorney Jake Fischer, based in Swier Law Firm's Corsica office, is the first person in the state to participate in South Dakota's Rural Attorney Recruitment Program. The program -- approved by the South Dakota Legislature in 2013 -- is meant to bring young attorneys to rural South Dakota. There is no other program like it in the nation.
Fischer jumped at the chance, he said, to move back to his home area.
