To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to express congratulations and thanks to members of the Glynn County Bar Association who spearheaded the recent observance of Law Day 2018.
Congratulations also go to Glynn Academy students Katherine Wood, Michaela Bassett, Emmaline Branch and Skylar Perez, who were recognized as winners of the Law Day Art Contest. The competition was focused on the national theme for this year’s celebration of Law Day, “Separation of Powers: Framework for Freedom,” which acknowledges the system of checks and balances among the three branches of U.S. government – legislative, executive and judicial.
Students in the advanced placement government classes at Brunswick High School and Glynn Academy were special guests for the event, which featured U.S. District Court Judge Lisa Godbey Wood as keynote speaker.
We commend all members of the Glynn County Bar Association for a most successful observance of Law Day, which helps make the public aware of the importance and value of our justice system.
Brian D. “Buck” Rogers
President, State Bar of Georgia
