Last Friday, the Virgil Hawkins Florida Chapter National Bar Association held their judicial reception at Florida A&M University’s College of Law, in celebration of the achievements of the Black Judiciary in the state of Florida. At the reception, Judge Alicia Latimore was presented with the Justice Peggy A. Quince Judicial Excellence Award! This award recognizes an exceptional member of the judiciary whose outstanding service and achievement have significantly contributed to the fair administration of justice. 

The Judicial Excellence Award recognizes Judge Latimore’s achievements as the first Black woman to serve as Circuit Court Judge and her significant impact in the circuit’s problem-solving and domestic violence courts. Her commitment to the community, dedication to wellness and well-being in the judiciary, and her high standard of judicial conduct make this honor a well-deserved one. 

Congratulations Judge Latimore!
