More than 100 attorneys from across Missouri and the nation were honored last month as “Senior Counselors” of The Missouri Bar. The “Senior Counselor” title is bestowed upon lawyers who have reached the age of 75 years or who have been admitted to The Missouri Bar for 50 years. The recognition ceremonies took place during the Opening Luncheon of the 132nd Annual Meeting of The Missouri Bar. Some familiar names from our area are: the Honorable Kenneth W. Shrum of Marble Hill; John R. Hopkins, Jr. & Clinton D. Summers of Poplar Bluff ; Jim S. Green and the Honorable Anthony J. Heckemeyer of Sikeston; and Ste. Genevieve’s Lillian P. Clark.
