The Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands, at their recent Board of Directors meeting in Nashville, recognized the outgoing board president for outstanding service.
Kathryn Edge served a one-year term as the president of the organization’s board of directors. Ms Edge has shown dedication and commitment to the position and to The Legal Aid Society.
