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.
