Open Arms Director honored by bar association

May 10, 2004

Albany- The executive director of Open Arms, Beth McKenzie was shocked when she received the 2004 Liberty Bell Award.

The honor is given each year to a non-lawyer who has contributed to the betterment of the justice system.

"I can't wait to do more work for children. It will go on as soon as I leave here, but it's just so wonderful to honor me like this. I'm just so moved by the whole thing," she says.

The winners of the bar association's Law Day essay contest were also recognized Monday. Robert Cross student Jeremy Jones and Albany High student Charlene Williams took first place honors for their essays based on the 50th anniversary of Brown vs. Board of Education.
