This Week at the Council

Larry Dagenhart – A Legacy of Giving

Recently, the Council for Children’s Rights, Legal Aid of North Carolina, and Legal Dagenahart CropServices of Southern Piedmont hosted their annual Pro Bono Awards, recognizing the important volunteer legal contributions made to each of the organizations.   While each group nominated volunteers for their agency in several categories, one award, the Distinguished Pro Bono Service Award, was presented as a collaborative selection by all three organizations.    This year’s recipient was Larry J. Dagenhart who has demonstrated extraordinary commitment to the cause of providing legal services to those for whom those services would otherwise be unavailable.

CFCR attorney John Parker presented the award that evening and we share his remarks here. He speaks for all of us in expressing our deep respect and gratitude for the long, dedicated commitment of this remarkable friend to the Council.
