CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The West Virginia Bar Foundation will honor the 2020 and 2021 fellows classes this month.
The new fellows include a Supreme Court justice, two circuit judges and a former family law master, the Supreme Court said in a news release.
The 2020 Fellows Dinner was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic, and both classes will be honored at a dinner on June 24 in Charleston.
Justice Tim Armstead and Circuit Judge Michael D. Lorensen of Berkeley, Jefferson and Morgan counties are members of the 2021 class.
Circuit Judge H.L. Kirkpatrick III of Raleigh County and former family law master Gloria Stephens of Welch make up the 2020 class.
The foundation names fellows whose careers demonstrate dedication to their communities and service to the profession. The foundation makes grants to organizations that provide legal services to low-income citizens and that improve the administration of justice, the release said.
