To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to DeKalb County State Court Judge Shondeana G. Morris on her appointment by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve as a Superior Court judge for the Stone Mountain Judicial Circuit, serving DeKalb County.
Judge Morris will be well served by her 22 years of experience in the legal profession, including service as a State Court judge and, previously, as a deputy district attorney for Fulton County and an assistant solicitor for the City of Atlanta. She is a valued member of the Board of Governors of the State Bar of Georgia.
With her acceptance of this appointment, Judge Morris demonstrates her ongoing commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish her well in this new capacity of judicial leadership.
Kenneth B. Hodges III
President, State Bar of Georgia
