To the Editor:
The State Bar of Georgia congratulates District Attorney Joyette Holmes on receiving the Marietta Daily Journal’s 2019 Citizen of the Year award, presented during the annual meeting of the Cobb Chamber of Commerce.
Joyette is well deserving of the award, which was established in 1963 to honor citizens who have made Cobb County better through their service. Whether as district attorney or as a board member of MUST Ministries and the Cobb Community Foundation, Joyette daily lives this award’s criteria.
By earning this prestigious honor in her home community, Joyette demonstrates her ongoing commitment to service. Her fellow State Bar of Georgia members add our appreciation and applause, and we would all do well to follow her example.
President, State Bar of Georgia
