A chaplain at White’s Residential and Family Services has been appointed to succeed Indiana Justice Christopher Goff as judge of the Wabash Superior Court.
Amy Conner Cornell, who has served as an administrative judge and worked in private practice, will fill the seat vacated by Goff when he was appointed to the Indiana Supreme Court. Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb announced Connell’s appointment Friday.
“Ms. Cornell, through her diverse education and career choices, will bring a unique combination of talent to the judiciary in Wabash County and Indiana as a whole,” Holcomb’s announcement said.
A graduate of Indiana University Maurer School of Law, Cornell was a judicial clerk to Indiana Supreme Court Justice Brent Dickson and later served as an administrative law judge for the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. She also maintained a private practice.
She holds a master of divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary.
Cornell will be sworn into office at a later date.
