Gregory A. Brush, Montgomery County Clerk of Courts, presented the “Outstanding Paralegal Award” to Susan K. Witherspoon on May 1, 2012 during the 2012 Law Day Chancery Luncheon in Dayton.
Susan spent 30 years working as a paralegal at several local firms. She is a founding member of the Greater Dayton Paralegal Association, held various positions with the National Federation of Paralegal Associations, and served as National Coordinator for the Paralegal Advanced Competency Exam. In addition, Susan has been an instructor with the Sinclair Community College Paralegal Program for 27 years and is an avid volunteer with Five Rivers Metroparks.
“It is an honor to present this award to an individual who not only excels in her profession, but also gives so much back to her community,” said Brush. “We are fortunate to have Susan’s professionalism in this region.”
Law Day was established in 1958 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. In 1961, Congress issued a joint resolution designating May 1st as the official date for celebrating Law Day. It is a day that legal professionals, the courts and the public take time to examine and celebrate our nation’s commitment to the rule of law.
