Serving as President of the American Judges Association (AJA) has been the pinnacle of my legal career. Being President of the AJA is a time-consuming and demanding volunteer job which I could not have done without the advice and counsel of so many. First and foremost, thank you to my family for your consistent support and love. A huge thank you to my Louisiana Judges for their unwavering support. A special thanks to Justice Piper Griffin, Judge Sheva Sims and Judge Kern Reese for serving on the executive committee with me. Kudos to the Executive Committee for their commitment and zeal. Thank you for your deep concern for the well-being of this Association. Serving with the members of this Executive Committee who were the epitome of professionalism and collegiality made my job most enjoyable and satisfying.
