On Wednesday, May 6th, the Delaware State Bar Association held the 2009 Delaware Law Day Luncheon. The Delaware Bar awarded Widener Law graduate Gary C. Linarducci, Esq. of the class of 1975 the Community Service Award.

“As attorneys, we have a unique set of skills to help our neighbors and our communities. Our ability to communicate, to organize, to lead, and to analyze are all qualities that are extremely valuable to schools, hospitals, charitable organizations, and other groups that do great work in our communities,” said Linarducci in his remarks after accepting the award from Richard E. Franta, Esq. He closed by saying, “To all of you in the audience that have spent many years helping your neighbors and communities with your time, your talent, and your financial resources, I share this award with you. Thank you.”

Allen M. Terrell, Jr., Esq., the President of the Delaware State Bar Association and a member of Widener Law’s Board of Overseers, opened the program with a welcome, and introduced the keynote speaker, the Honorable Jack Markell, Governor of Delaware. Terrell received a commendation for his service to the Delaware State Bar Association.

In addition to the Community Service Award presented to Mr. Linarducci, the Delaware State Bar Association presented the Liberty Bell Award to Elaine Markell.
