Judge Ross Honored at Retirement Reception

A retirement reception last Friday brought out a standing-room only crowd to honor 10th Judicial District Circuit Court Judge Carroll Ross. McMinn County Mayor John Gentry was on hand to present Ross with a proclamation thanking him for his 18 years of service on the bench. Steve Lawson with the 10th Judicial District Drug Task Force also presented Ross with a plaque, noting that he had been helpful, open and welcoming to law enforcement. Finally, Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Sharon Lee spoke about working with Ross early in her career, saying, “He's one of the finest people I know.” The Daily Post Athenian has a full report on the event.
