Aukes sworn in as Hubbard County Sheriff on Monday
A homegrown son fulfilled his life's ambition Monday morning as Cory Aukes was sworn in as Hubbard County Sheriff.
The new sheriff, a Park Rapids native, got a hug from mom Gina Aukes and a "Good job!" salutation. His extended family, in-laws, two kids and wife Molly all stood by, most with digital cameras flashing.
"He worked very hard and we're so proud of him," said aunt Tish Snelling.
Aukes was sworn in by district court operations supervisor Lindy Berg.
