Supreme Court Justice Cornelia Clark addressed the Legal Aid Society staff at their bi-annual meeting May 16. Justice Clark called the employees of the Legal Aid Society the "unsung and 'unplayed' heroes of the ongoing efforts to improve access to justice in Tennessee."
She compared the employees to members of a marching band, the real virtuosos, saying "whatever part in the band you play - answering phones, filing papers, preparing legal documents, etc. - your work keeps the music playing: your work matters."
Justice Clark went on to inspire the staff by speaking about Ability, Motivation and Attitude and thanked them for their effiorts.
"I appreciate and value your efforts, as do all the members of the Tennessee Supreme Court, and I sincerely thank you for your commitment, for the dedication you bring to the task, and for the beautiful music you make every day," said Justice Clark.
