Tampa, FL (December 20, 2010) – The law firm of Wiand Guerra King announced today that one of its members, Kacy Donlon, has been honored with the George C. Carr Memorial Award by the Tampa Bay Chapter of the Federal Bar Association. This award, named for Chief Judge George Carr (1929-1990), is the highest award presented by the chapter and recognizes excellence in federal practice and distinguished service to the Federal Bar Association.

The George C. Carr Memorial Award is presented to a lawyer who exemplifies Judge Carr’s characteristics of common sense, integrity and service as well as a lawyer who has made significant contributions to the Federal Bar Association.

She also represented the chapter in December 2005 in making a presentation at the U.S. Supreme Court building to Chief Justice William Rehnquist’s daughter to commemorate the Chapter’s admiration after his passing.
