Middlesex's Law Day celebration focuses on civil rights
On May 2, Middlesex County Bar Association President Phil
Privitera hosted the county's "Realizing the Dream: Equality for
All" Law Day celebration, which focused on civil rights.
The event, which featured many distinguished guest speakers --
including Middlesex Sheriff Peter Koutoujian, Middlesex District
Attorney Marian Ryan and Sen. Sal DiDomenico -- honored 21 high
school students for academic, civic, humanitarian and athletic
leadership achievements. In addition, there were two Law Day
honorees: Hon. Peter DiGangi, of the Middlesex Probate and Family
Court and Scott Wahle, an educator/broadcast personality.
Over $10,000 in scholarships was also awarded at the event. Four
scholarships were awarded in honor of the late Frank Cullen, who
served in Woburn District Court for over 30 Years. Former Middlesex
District Attorney Gerry Leone sponsored a scholarship in memory of
Karen Lombard, a longtime board member and former assistant clerk
of Woburn District Court.
