Greg Bourland, who has served as the BIA Superintendent for the Cheyenne River Agency has stepped down and has accepted a position with the Regional Office in Aberdeen.
Bourland started as the new Deputy Regional Officer for Trust Services on Monday, January 8.
Bourland has served as the Agency Superintendent for the past eight years and was the BIA Realty Officer prior to that. He served as the Chairman of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe from 1992 through 2000.
Wayne LaBelle will serve as the Acting Superintendent for four weeks while a replacement for Bourland is sought.
“It has been an extreme pleasure to have served as the Agency Superintendent for the last eight years and as the Realty Officer before that,” said Bourland in an email sent to the West River Eagle.
“I consider our agency to be second to none in all departments. We have some of the most dedicated and hard working people that I have had the pleasure working with. Mr. Wayne LaBelle will be taking over as the Acting Superintendent on Monday morning,” said Bourland
“Once again, I want to thank the People of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe for giving me the opportunity to have worked with you and for you, and I will never be far away. I will now be working on behalf of all the Tribes in the Great Plains Region, but my heart will always be with Cheyenne River.”
