It is with the greatest of pleasure that I write to advise the South Carolina Bankruptcy Bar that our colleague, George B. Cauthen, has been selected as the 2018 recipient of the Bankruptcy Inn Alliance Distinguished Service Award given by the American Inns of Court. This national award recognizes the individual recipient’s ongoing dedication to the highest standards of the legal profession, the rule of law and the demonstration of personal ethics and integrity. George joins the ranks of only 7 prior recipients, including bankruptcy judges and lawyers of national reputation, who are identified in the attachment.
The award will be presented to George at the 2018 Annual Conference of the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges in San Antonio, Texas, which will be held on October 28-31, 2018 and be followed by a reception in his honor. Please join me in congratulating George on this honor.
