To the Editor:
The State Bar of Georgia congratulates the officers and members of the Cobb County Bar Association, which raised $17,000 in the 2019 Alexis Grubbs Memorial Golf Tournament to fund scholarships for Marietta High School students interested in a legal career.
This year’s tournament brings the total amount raised for the scholarship fund to $250,000 since its inception. The Cobb Bar and the Cobb County Legal Secretaries Association established the fund in memory of former Marietta High School student Alexis Grubbs, daughter of Senior Superior Court Judge Adele Grubbs.
Successful programs like this help fulfill the duty of lawyers to serve not only the justice system but also the communities where they practice. Well done, Cobb County Bar Association.
President, State Bar of Georgia
