Each year, The Florida Bar outgoing President recognizes a few individuals who have provided distinguished service to the Bar, the legal profession and the justice system. On June 22 at The Florida Bar’s Annual Convention in Orlando, FL, outgoing Florida Bar president Scott Hawkins chose Coleman as one of two individuals to receive the award. The plaque presented to Coleman reads: “For your leadership and your efforts to expand and enhance communications to Florida Bar members through thoughtful planning, innovative ideas, and the use of technology. Your many contributions to The Florida Bar this year, also including your service as a co-chair of the discipline commission, deserve the highest commendation and abundant gratitude.”
