Orlando, Florida – The Blue Ridge Bar Association, which serves Cherokee County, was honored with the Award of Merit and the Law Day Award of Achievement for voluntary bar associations with 101 to 250 members, presented June 7 during the Annual Meeting of the State Bar of Georgia.

The Awards of Merit are presented to voluntary bar associations for their dedication to improving relations among local lawyers and devoting significant hours to serving their communities.

The Law Day Awards of Achievement recognize local bar associations for excellence in planning and carrying out activities in their respective communities to commemorate Law Day on May 1.

In order to encourage and support local and voluntary bars and their service programs, to promote activities which relate to the improvement of the administration of justice, the objectives of the State Bar of Georgia, and the image of lawyers, the State Bar annually sponsors an awards program which recognizes excellence in local and voluntary bar associations. Administered by the Local and Voluntary Bars Committee, awards are presented to winners at the State Bar’s Annual Meeting.
