Today we introduce you to the 2019 Hugh Willcox Volunteer of the YearSarah McIntosh

Sarah was the recipient of the Pro Bono Program’s highest honor because of her high degree of demonstrated commitment to the ethic of service and the goals of the Program.  She was an active VITA volunteer, a guardian ad litem with the Probate Court Project as well as a dedicated volunteer CASA with Richland County CASA.  In addition to these projects Sarah was also a mainstay of many outreach activities associated with the SC Bar- the Friday Blitz, My Wills and the Prisoner Correspondence team.

As an Ambassador for the Law School Sarah would bring prospective students and their families by the Pro Bono Program office.  Her enthusiasm about service was infectious but she could also balance the concerns about academic needs.As a Pro Bono Board member Sarah was an amazing advocate and recruiter of volunteers. Sarah is  preparing to take the SC Bar exam in July and will then head off to Georgetown Law School to pursue an LL,M. in Taxation.

Sarah shows off her award with able assistance from her sidekick, Dante.

Each Tuesday, we will highlight the volunteer work of one of our unsung heroes.

Today we put the spotlight on Randi Jones. Randi is a 2nd year student and spends one morning a week at Harvest Hope Food Bank and two mornings a week conducting intake for the Vitual VITA program at Cooperative Ministries. Randi sought out these opportunities to serve and gain experience when her summer clerkship cancelled.  We welcome Randi and thank her for stepping up and helping.
