Congratulations, Pamela!

Kudos to our own Pamela Ferguson-Brey, winner of the Hawaii Women Lawyers' 1994 Woman Lawyer of the Year award. She will officially receive the award at a reception to be held on Friday, January 20, 4:30-7:30 pm. at the Plaza Club. (Call 396-8506 if interested in attending.) We know Pam as chair of our Human Resources Committee, but she also holds a full time position as executive director of the Hawaii Commission on the Status of Women, where she is immersed in legislative and community work. For example, she helped draft a bill to establish a clearinghouse for missing and abducted children, heads the Women's Legislative Coalition, acts as coordinating counsel on domestic violence, and recently coordinated community groups for Women's Health Month. As a result of this last project, she hopes to expand the network of groups working on issues relating to women and children.

Prior to her work with the commission, Pam was a deputy attorney general with Child Protective Services, and a deputy prosecuting attorney, working mostly in Family Court. We are fortunate to have Pam as an active LWV member, and offer our heartiest congratulations on receiving this prestigious award.
