COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Ohio Federation of Republican Women (OFRW) recently honored Cindy Pike at its Biennial Tribute to Women event. Pike is a member of the Darke County Republican Women’s Club (DCRWC) that nominated her for the recognition. Carrie Almond, President of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) was present to assist in honoring Pike.

“The women honored by the OFRW are outstanding examples of Republicanism in the OFRW and their local communities,” said OFRW President Lyn Bliss. “The Tribute to Women event honors unit club members who have given their time and talent to promote Republican candidates and values. In addition to supporting the election of excellent candidates - criteria for being honored may include things such as serving in government offices, accomplishing meaningful results in professional life, successfully rearing families and volunteering in civic and/or church organizations.”

Pike has served as the Darke County clerk of courts since 1996. She is a stalwart within the DCRWC, having held many offices over the years. She served as Darke County Republican Party chair from 2005 to 2013. She has been a Darke County Republican Central Committee member since 1996, including chairing committees and holding the offices of secretary and president. She has been on the Darke County Republican Executive Committee since 1996.

She has chaired campaign committees and helped raise funds for various candidates since 1984. She has chaired the county Lincoln Day Dinner, organized the first annual Darke County GOP Golf Scramble in 1997, and turned in record-setting call and door-to-door efforts on Super Saturday in 2006. She volunteered with the George W. Bush campaign, and on election night at the Darke County Board of Elections. She has promoted Republican candidates and positions on issues and levies for more than 30 years.

Other volunteer activities include the Red Cross Board, Boys and Girls Club of Greenville Board, Paralegal Advisory Board for Edison Community College, and the Ohio Clerks of Court Association. She organized a volunteer group to support the Darke County Park District, served on its Board of Trustees, and formed an endowment program to support park-related needs. Pike has also been active in the Greenville Business and Professional Women, the Greater Dayton Paralegal Association, and the Ohio Advisory Board for the American Institute of Paralegal Studies.
