Laura Ghee Alexander
The Calhoun-Cleburne Counties Bar Association was recently recognized with the Award of Achievement from the Alabama Bar Association for outstanding service to the public during 2011-2012. President of the local bar during this time period, Laura Ghee Alexander, noted the significance of the award and the wide participation of attorneys in various programs that prompted this honor. The events judged in awarding this included the observance of Law Day 2012, the donation to Cleburne County for erecting a Lady Justice statue on the dome of the courthouse, working with Jacksonville State University’s criminal justice program and donations of time and money to Christian Family Projects, the animal shelter and the sheriff’s Courthouse Teddy Bear Project.
Ms. Alexander noted that the local bar has many attorneys supporting local projects and that the bar remains active in the community to support local groups and individuals in serving the needs of our area.
