Tennessee CASA Names 2013 Award Winners

Tennessee CASA today presented 13th Judicial District Attorney General Randy York with its 2013 Champion for Children Award. York, who serves Clay, Cumberland, DeKalb, Overton, Pickett, Putnam and White counties, was recognized for his use of a state law allowing the seizure of assets following conviction for a sex crime against minors. Funding from the seizures goes to child abuse prevention organizations, including CASA. It also presented its CASA Advocate of the Year Award to the TBA’s  Stacey Shrader Joslin for her work as director of the Young Lawyers Division and a contributing writer to the association’s daily newsletter TBA Today. The TBA YLD has long supported the work of CASA through a variety of initiatives, and each year recognizes an outstanding volunteer in the state.
