Memphis lawyer and former TBA President George T. "Buck" Lewis has been selected to receive the University of Tennessee’s Alumni Service Award, which recognizes extraordinary service to the school. Lewis, a shareholder with Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz, earned his undergraduate, business and law degrees from the university, and has remained engaged with alumni and development activities. Lewis “gives generously of his time as one of the university's most ardent and influential advocates in West Tennessee,” said Dr. Joe DiPietro, president of the University of Tennessee System. Douglas A. Blaze, dean of the College of Law, added, "Buck is an extraordinary individual who has devoted his career to serving his clients, his alma mater, his profession and his state. He represents all that is great about the University of Tennessee and the legal profession." Read more on the Baker Donelson website.
