Leo Romero Receives ABA’s Spirit of Excellence Award 2014

Romero_LeoLast Saturday at the ABA’s Mid-Year meeting in Chicago,  NITA’s very own Leo Romero was singled out as a 2014 Spirit Honoree by the ABA’s Commission on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Profession.

The luncheon is a key event in the ABA’s annual mid-year meeting. It creates waves far beyond even the very influential Commission, and is attended by most ABA leaders and many mid-year meeting attendees. Honorees are persons of national visibility, chosen from nominees as “lawyers who excel in their professional settings; who personify excellence on the national, state, or local level; and who have demonstrated a commitment to racial and ethnic diversity in the legal profession.” (See link below for the award brochure.) Leo certainly is all of that and more!

As our Immediate Past Chair of the NITA Board, Leo makes us justifiably proud as he achieves this honor. For all of your activities, Leo, in and for the profession, we are particularly grateful for your service—and we know continuing service—to NITA. Congratulations!
