NH Bar Foundation: Union Leader Publisher to Speak at Foundation Fellows Event
Joseph McQuaid, publisher of the New Hampshire Union Leader, will be a special guest at the NH Bar Foundation Justice Fellows Reception on Wednesday, June 8, at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester.
The event includes recognition of a select number of new fellows, based on nomination and a record of achievement and excellence in the profession.
Two awards will be given out for the first time: the Distinguished Honorary Fellow Award recognizing a lifetime of sustained and extraordinary professional achievement and public service; and the Nixon-Zachos Award, in memory of David Nixon and Kimon Zachos, two lawyers whose outstanding legal careers and community service exemplify the public spirit of the legal profession in New Hampshire.
The revival of the NH Bar Foundation Fellows Program aims to create new opportunities for Fellows to become personally involved in advocacy to advance the legal profession and enhance public understanding of the rule of law and our system of government.
Participants in the fellows program pledge multi-year gifts in support of the NH Bar Foundation’s mission to support equal access to justice, as well as the charitable and education aims of the New Hampshire legal community.
“By bringing together experienced and emerging leaders among lawyers and judges in our state, we can help generate and sustain new funding sources for the charitable purposes for which the foundation was created,” said Jack Middleton, chair of the Bar Foundation.
Contact Scott Harris for more information about the fellows program. He is currently working to identify sponsors for the June 8 event.
