Canyon County Deputy Clerk Raena Bull was recently honored with one of Idaho’s top judiciary service awards for 2018 – the Douglas D. Kramer Award.  Bull was presented with the Kramer Award during Idaho’s annual judicial conference in September.  She is the 32nd recipient and only the second deputy clerk to ever receive the award.

Bull has worked for Canyon County Courts since 1992 in various roles and positions and currently serves as the Training & Development Manager.  In January 2014, she volunteered and was granted the privilege by Clerk Chris Yamamoto to assist and join the Idaho Supreme Court’s iCourt Project Team and Training Team.  Over the past four years, she has helped in the implementation of the Odyssey Case Management System in counties throughout Idaho by providing training and assistance.  Her knowledge, work ethic, and experience have been instrumental in the successful implementation of this new program that is vital to Idaho’s court system.

“There is no one more deserving of this award than Raena.  She has always been a dedicated employee, and she proved that even further when she volunteered to assist with the Odyssey implementation across the state,” said Clerk Chris Yamamoto.  “She understands the nuances of the iCourt system better than almost anyone, and she continues to be a vital resource for clerks throughout Idaho.  I couldn’t be prouder.”

The Kramer Award is awarded annually to the person who best exemplifies excellence in judicial administration through character and action.  It is named in honor of the late District Judge Douglas D. Kramer.
