CMBA Honored With Two Awards for Its Community Outreach Programs 

CLEVELAND – September 10, 2013 – The Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association (CMBA) is proud to announce that in August it received two different awards for two of its community outreach programs. 

The Cleveland Metropolitan School District presented the CMBA with a Five Star General Award at the annual Army of Believers luncheon. These “Five Star Generals” are those whose outstanding support has made a significant difference in the lives of CMSD students. Citing examples like The 3Rs, 3Rs+, Cleveland Mock Trials, Louis Stokes Scholars Program, and Stephanie Tubbs Jones Summer Legal Academy, the CMBA was honored for showing “ an industry or profession can connect with education.” 

In addition, the CMBA received a national award for its Louis Stokes Scholars Program from the National Association of Bar Executives (NABE). The CMBA received the annual LexisNexis Community and Educational Outreach Award at NABE’s annual meeting in San Francisco last month. This award honors outstanding public service and law-related education program of bar associations.
