To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to express congratulations to Covington attorney J. Virgil Costley on his appointment by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve on the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services State Advisory Board.
All Georgians will benefit from Mr. Costley’s service on the board, which reviews and makes recommendations regarding issues related to the protection of children and the welfare and public assistance functions of the Division of Family and Children Services.
Mr. Costley’s acceptance of this new position demonstrates his continued commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish him well in this new capacity of statewide leadership.
Dawn M. Jones
President, State Bar of Georgia
