GREENVILLE – The Darke County Republican Women’s Club (DCRWC) is inviting the public to a special program featuring two justices of the Ohio Supreme Court. Speaking will be Justice Judith French and Justice Sharon Kennedy.
The program will be held at 6:30 p.m. on July 9 in the Brick Room of the Brethren Home Retirement Community, 750 Chestnut St., Greenville. An optional dinner is available at 6 p.m., with prior reservations.
The justices will speak about challenges faced by members of the Ohio Supreme Court, structure of the Ohio Judicial system and what is involved in becoming a member of the Ohio Supreme Court.
“Having two members of the Supreme Court of Ohio is a great honor. Justices French and Kennedy will be in Darke County to provide insight into the personal side of the Court. We are so pleased to provide this opportunity for the residents of Darke County to meet with two of the Justices and have a chance to speak with them personally,” said Betty Hill, DCRWC president.
Justice French was seated on the Supreme Court of Ohio in 2013. With a history of public service and wide-ranging legal experience, a passion for equal justice and a special interest in civic education, she is committed to serving as a resource for the people of Ohio.
Justice Kennedy was seated on the Supreme Court of Ohio in 2012. With her, she brought a history of work within the justice field ranging from serving as a police officer, through running her own legal practice, to sitting on the Domestic Relations branch of the Butler County Court of Common Pleas.
