Lee County Bar assists students September 1, 2015 Regular News L ee County Bar assists studentsAs the Lee County Bar Association celebrates 66 years of service, its lawyers have reaffirmed their commitment to the younger members of the community by offering scholarships, hands-on learning activities, team building, civics education, recognition of educational excellence, career shadowing experience, mentorship, and fundraising on behalf of young people throughout the year.LCBA President Anne Dalton declared 2015 to be the LCBA Year of Professionalism and Ethics.“Our American way of life is rapidly changing to a global perspective,” Dalton said. “American youth, in many ways, are in the forefront of that development, both technologically and culturally. Our traditional concepts of ethics and professionalism also need to change to fit current mores. However, the underpinnings of these concepts stay the same and the Bar must convey that perspective to our children through actions, not words.”The bar and judiciary recently raised $20,500 for the Alliance for the Arts’ youth scholarship programs to open arts educational opportunities to children of limited means.
