FAYETTE COUNTY ATTORNEY RECEIVES ‘EVERYDAY LEADER’ AWARD FROM THE PENNSYLVANIA BAR ASSOCIATION

HARRISBURG (Sept. 13, 2006) — Fayette County attorney Robert Webster Jr. has received an Everyday Leader Award from the Pennsylvania Bar Association (PBA).

“Robert invests significant energies into bettering his community and his profession,” said PBA President Kenneth J. Horoho Jr., who presented the award to Webster. “His ongoing service to others is commendable.”

Webster is active with the Fayette County Bar Association. He served as the organization’s 2004-05 president and is currently planning its fall bench/bar conference. He is a former member of the PBA’s Legal Ethics and Professional Responsibility Committee.

For 20 years, Webster has served as a vestry person for St. Peter’s Anglican Church and senior warden for three priests. He also has served as a Sunday school teacher for teenagers and adults.

Webster has been a member of the Uniontown Rotary Club for the past 15 years.

He is a shareholder in the law firm of Webster & Webster P.C., Uniontown.

“The Everyday Leader Award is given to individuals who go above and beyond, sharing their time and talent to help and support others,” said Horoho. “These unsung heroes work hard each and every day performing good works, not for personal gain or recognition, but for the right reasons–to improve the places they call home and to better Pennsylvania’s legal system. Robert Webster is one of these ‘everyday leaders’ and is deserving of this award in gratitude for his contributions to Fayette County.”

Founded in 1895, the Pennsylvania Bar Association exists to promote justice, professional excellence and respect of the law; improve public understanding of the legal system; facilitate access to legal services; and serve the 29,000 lawyers who are members of the association.
