Ground Breaking Judge Highlights Bowling Green Law Day

By Jake Boswell | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Lawyers and judges from around the state made their way to downtown Bowling Green Tuesday morning for Law Day.

The event was highlighted by multiple awards such as The William H. Natcher Award, which was given to the late Judge Margaret Huddleston.

The event was lucky enough to bring Judge Bernice Donald as the keynote speaker. Donald is the first African-American female judge on the U.S. Sixth District Court Of Appeals. She says she's proud of communities in the U.S. like Bowling Green for promoting diversity and equality.

"This community as you say is really a microcosm of what the rest of the world ought to be. You're doing it without tension, without turmoil. You're doing it with people coming here, moving, living growing. I would hope the rest of the world would embrace all dimensions of diversity as Bowling Green is currently doing so effectively," said Judge Donald.

It's expected the next time a U.S. Supreme Court Justice seat opens in Washington, that Judge Donald could be on the short list of candidates to be nominated.
