Cynthia Chappell has been selected for membership in the Tennessee Bar Foundation.
The Foundation honors attorneys who have distinguished themselves in the profession by electing them to membership as “Fellows.” Their contributions are used to support selected, law-related public interest projects. Selection is limited to lawyers with who have demonstrated an uncompromised dedication to integrity and high personal and professional ethical standards; made outstanding and recognized contributions to the legal profession and to the public good; and demonstrated a strong commitment to the published objectives and purposes of the Tennessee Bar Foundation.”
A class of new Fellows, apportioned among the state’s three Grand Divisions, is chosen each year.
Suggestions for new Fellows are solicited from the current membership. Names are then forwarded to the appropriate committee for that Grand Division, which whittles the submissions to the required number. The Board of Trustees makes the final decision as to the members of the class.
Chappell will be inducted into membership on May 5, 2018.
