During the month of April, the Young Lawyers Section partnered with Hunter Elementary School in Greensboro to host a breakfast to recognize the school’s honor roll students. The YLS provided and served food to around 150 students and family members at the honor roll breakfast, which was held before school on Friday, April 21st. Thank you to Hunter Elementary School for allowing us to help celebrate the achievements of their students, and thank you to all Young Lawyers Section members and GBA members who were able to join us!
The Young Lawyers Section also wrapped up its NCAA Tournament Bracket Challenge in the month of April. The 1st place finisher was Eliu Mendez, 2nd place was John Wright, and 3rd place was “Deb_&_Bailey.” Congratulations to all three winners! The three finalists should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to claim their prize.
