WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - Wahpeton’s first female City Council member and the community’s first full-time female realtor is calling it a career.

Sixty-seven-year-old Donna Keogh is retiring from the city’s Planning Commission and from Action Realtors Ltd., which she co-founded in 1988.

Keogh served as a councilwoman from 1994-98. She became Wahpeton’s first full-time realtor in 1981 before going on to co-found Action Realtors with Steve Diederick in 1988, The Wahpeton Daily News (https://bit.ly/2jdTwvW ) reports.

Keogh has been an active member of North Dakota real estate committees and the Wahpeton-Breckenridge Area Chamber of Commerce’s board of directors over the years.

She is scheduled to become the recipient of 2017’s first proclamation of appreciation from the Wahpeton City Council.

Wahpeton economic development director Jane Priebe called Keogh “a great ambassador for our city,” and praised her insight on real estate, city planning and zoning.

“As much as she learned from us, we learned from her as well,” Priebe said.

Keogh said she looks forward to spending more time with her friends and family.

“I still like to talk to people. I get a lot more out of that than from an email or a text. I’ll do them, but I want to hear the real emotion in a person’s voice,” she said.
