Attorney Bonnie Lee Polk
Honored by Sarasota County Bar Association
Bonnie Lee Polk, an attorney with Williams Parker, was recently honored by the Sarasota County Bar Association (SCBA) with its C.L. McKaig Award. This award, named after the first president of the SCBA in 1934, recognizes extraordinary service to the SCBA by one of its members in promoting the association’s goals, programs, or functions. Ms. Polk was recognized for “her extraordinary service to the SCBA by ensuring the future greatness of our judiciary through her work on the Judicial Nominating Commission, by instilling the importance of mentorship and professionalism as president of the Judge John M. Scheb American Inn of Court, and the countless hours providing advice and counsel to the new members of the SCBA.” She was presented the award at the association’s annual dinner on September 28 at the Sarasota Yacht Club.
