SUFFOLK COUNTY SHERIFF ANDREA J. CABRAL TO RECEIVE LAWYER’S, LEADERSHIP AWARDS


Suffolk County Sheriff Andrea J. Cabral will be honored twice this week for her significant contributions and commitments to the rule of law and justice in the Commonwealth, and her leadership role in the community.

On Wednesday night, May 14, Sheriff Cabral will be honored as one of 10 lawyers selected by the editors of “Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly” for her involvement and work in significant cases both as a former prosecutor at the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office and her role as Sheriff.

The 2003 Celebration of Excellence in Law award ceremony will be held at 6:30 p.m. at Omni Parker House in Boston.

On Thursday night, May 15, Sheriff Cabral will receive the Colonel Daniel Marr Boys and Girls Club’s 2003 New England Women’s Leadership Award at the World Trade Center in Boston.

The New England Women’s Leadership Awards recognize women who have not only risen to positions of respect and influence, but have also found ways to give back to their communities. NEWLA recipients are outstanding leaders; they make it a priority to improve the status of the underserved; they have forged new paths of endeavor for women—demonstrating the personal qualities of leadership and commitment that make them role models.

Sheriff Cabral is the recipient of the NEWLA Leadership Award, one of four honorees to be recognized Thursday night.

The award ceremonies begin at 7 p.m. at the World Trade Center. Sheriff Cabral will be available both nights following the conclusion of the ceremonies.
