To the Editor:
The State Bar of Georgia congratulates graduating seniors Hannah Bodus of Newton High School and Faith Reed of Social Circle High School on being honored as the first recipients of the Beyond the Bar Scholarship.
The $1,000 scholarships were provided by the Beyond the Bar Foundation, a collaboration of the NewRock Legal Society, Newton County Bar Association, Rockdale County Bar Association and Walton County Bar Association to assist local students with furthering their education after high school. With 4.0 grade point averages, Hannah and Faith have earned these honors and deserve the recognition.
We further salute our colleagues in the local bar associations for their efforts to give back to the youth in their communities, thus living up to the lawyer’s duty to serve others.
President, State Bar of Georgia
