Members of the Mizzou Law community were recently honored at the Missouri Lawyers Media’s 18th Annual Women’s Justice Award Ceremony.

Professor Melody Richardson Daily, ’86, was presented with the Legal Scholar Award in recognition of her service to the law school and the Missouri legal community through her work as director of the legal research and writing program at Mizzou.

Second-year student Tamar Hodges was presented with the Leaders of Tomorrow Award.  The award committee noted Hodges’ many accomplishments, including her ability to reach the Dean’s List at Mizzou while also working as a registered nurse and raising her 9-year-old son.

Two Mizzou Law alumnae were also recognized with Women’s Justice Awards.

Sara G. Neill, ’03, who practices with Capes Sokol in St. Louis, was presented with the Business Practitioner Award, which is “awarded to female business practitioners who fulfill the ideals of leadership, professionalism and a passion for improving the quality of the justice system or contributing to the betterment of the legal profession.”

Kathryn N. Nolen Proffitt, ’06, who is the pro bono coordinator for Lathrop & Gage in Kansas City, was presented with the Citizenship Award, which is “generally, though not necessarily, awarded to female non-lawyers who have made significant contributions to improving the quality of justice in the community.” Nolen Proffitt was recognized for her work with Jackson County (Mo.) CASA.
