On April 25, seven students were inducted into Albany High School’s Legal Chiefs Chapter of the Georgia Law Honor Society. The induction ceremony was hosted by the Dougherty County Bar Association in conjunction with their annual Law Day luncheon held at the Merry Acres Event Center. Inductees included juniors Aaliyah Dent, A’Mon Gordon, Kadarius Moore, and Tickeria Stampers, along with seniors Katherine Gilyard, Joseph Myler, and Andrew Tabatt. The Georgia Law Honor Society is a program offered to secondary schools by the State Bar Association of Georgia. The purpose of the Society is to promote and reward strong academic and volunteer achievement in the field of law education. Members are awarded a certificate of membership and a Georgia Law Honor Society pin, and have the opportunity to participate in an organization that improves its members while improving the community. Law and justice instructor Lynn Miller serves as advisor for the Legal Chiefs.
Albany High School honor and law magnet students were also awarded for winning the Law Day essay contest. A’Kera Watson won first place, Kadarius Moore won second place and Aaliyah Dent won third place. This year’s essays were based on the national theme “No courts, no justice, no freedom. Why the courts matter to me.”
