To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to express congratulations to Kailey Holley and Deztiny Favors of Andrea B. Williams Elementary School, winners of the 2018 Law Day Coloring Contest, sponsored by the State Court of Chatham County. Linea Romano and Samira Ewetola of Bartlett Middle School were the second- and third-place winners, respectively.
The national theme for this year’s celebration of Law Day, “Separation of Powers: Framework for Freedom,” acknowledges the system of checks and balances among the three branches of U.S. government – legislative, executive and judicial.
We commend Chatham County State Court Judge H. Gregory Fowler, who presided over the presentation ceremony, the Judicial Council of Georgia, which sponsored prizes, and everyone involved in a most successful observance of Law Day, which helps make the public aware of the importance and value of our justice system.
Kenneth B. Hodges III
President, State Bar of Georgia
