On Friday, September 25, 2015, at the JW Marriott Marquis, we had the privilege and honor of bestowing our most prestigious award, the annual Edward B. Davis Award for Service to the Federal Bench and Bar to Steven M. Larimore, Court Administrator – Clerk of the Court. The award is given annually to someone who has exemplified the Chapter’s values of excellence and service to the community, the federal bench, and the federal bar. Additionally, our incoming president, Oliver A. Ruiz, and the 2015-2016 Executive Board, were sworn in. We had a fabulous turnout from our judiciary and local bar. Chief Judge Moore gave a wonderful introduction to Mr. Larimore, detailing Mr. Larimore’s impressive credentials, and the amazing work he has done on behalf of the district, particularly advancing us to the forefront of 21st century technology. Mr. Larimore expressed sincere gratitude for the award, and recounted the journey to reach his position and the lessons he learned along the way.
The Board was also proud to present an award of appreciation to Bruce Yasukochi, CPA, of Cherry Bekaert, who has dedicated his time and expertise, pro bono, to the FBA, ensuring our finances are in order and that we are well positioned for future growth and success. Thanks Bruce!
All in all, it was a fantastic evening!
Pictures forthcoming soon. Stay tuned.
