To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to extend congratulations to Aflac Executive Vice President and General Counsel Audrey Boone Tillman, who was among the recipients of the Rosa Parks Women of Courage Awards, presented recently by Sisters Inc., the charity outreach arm of the Gamma Tau Omega chapter of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.
Ms. Tillman was honored along with Columbus Mayor Teresa P. Tomlinson, who practiced law earlier in her career and remains an active member of the State Bar, and local community leader Ann Caggins.
We are inspired by the service and accomplishments of Ms. Tillman, Mayor Tomlinson and Ms. Caggins, and we appreciate their ongoing contributions to the betterment of the Columbus-Muscogee County community and the state of Georgia.
Patrick T. O'Connor
President, State Bar of Georgia
