As promised . . . here are the photos from Wednesday!
This morning Shannon Scruggs, Executive Director of the SC Bar Foundation, and I (Executive Director of the SC Access to Justice Commission) had the distinct privilege of announcing the 2010 Ellen Hines Smith Legal Services Attorney of the Year – Susan Firimonte.
Susan was surprised as her other Florence office-mates, Andrea Loney (SCLS‘ Executive Director) and we gathered in her office to make the announcement.
In support letters, Florence attorneys were impressed by Susan’s professionalism and with her legal acumen, even citing a Workers Compensation case that was heard at the Supreme Court of South Carolina. Others noted her enthusiasm and hard work to ensure delivery of legal services to the low-income community in the Pee Dee.
Susan will receive the 2010 Ellen Hines Smith Legal Services Attorney of the Year Award at the South Carolina Bar Foundation’s Gala, March 3, 2011. Please join us at the Gala as we honor Susan Firimonte!
P.S. Check back tomorrow for photos.
Ok, there’s a quick break in between sessions and yes, my last session ended a few minutes early. And before I forget, yes I’m addicted to blogging. SO, here’s the latest update.
Today I have been able to see friends from home – Tom Trent, Andrea Loney, Shannon Scruggs and Pamela Robinson – as well as friends from other places – Louis Rulli, Richard Zorza, my fellow ATJers and others. Some I’ve only met via cyberspace – Claudia Johnson, it was nice to finally meet you in person!
And, here are the photos from the morning.
