The St. Petersburg Bar Foundation is excited to announce a new annual event commencing in 2017 which will focus on community service and the servants who have dedicated their life to community service.
The St. Petersburg Bar Foundation is honored that Stetson University College of Law is home to the Foundation’s latest monument: a monument dedicated to the Liberty Bell Award, the Heroes Among Us Award, and the Dean’s Scholarship.
The Liberty Bell Award is an award which has been awarded annually since 1965 to a non-lawyer who contributes to a greater understanding of the legal system and improves the American system of justice.
The Heroes Among Us Award is an award when has been given by the Foundation since 2005 to attorneys who give their time and talents to our community and beyond.
The Dean’s Scholarship is the Foundation’s newest scholarship and goes to a Stetson University of Law School student who has dedicated his or her law school career to achieve exempliary community service.
This annual event recognizes these wonderful community service members – a layperson, lawyer, and law school student – and provides a wonderful evening of recognition and networking for all members in the community. It also provides an opportunity to recognize the Foundation’s monument at the Stetson University College of Law campus.
