To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to attorney Tom C. Rawlings on his recent appointment by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve as the new director of the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS).
Mr. Rawlings will be well served by his 26 years of experience in the legal profession and his previous service as interim director of DFCS, Juvenile Court judge for the Middle Judicial Circuit and chairman of the Washington County Board of Education.
With his acceptance of this appointment, Mr. Rawlings demonstrates his ongoing commitment to public service. We wish him well in this new capacity of statewide leadership.
Kenneth B. Hodges III
President, State Bar of Georgia
