The Indiana Supreme Court recently honored dozens of judges, magistrate judges and commissioners for their commitment to higher judicial education and their long-time service.
Judicial officers must complete 120 hours of education presented by the Indiana Office of Court Services to graduate from the Indiana Judicial College, which enhances legal knowledge and improves personal and professional development.
Chief Justice Loretta Rush also recognized Senior Magistrate Judge Geoffrey A. Gaither for receiving a master’s certificate from the college. Judicial officers must complete the graduate program, 120 hours of master’s courses and submit an original writing piece or project to receive the honor.
Additionally, four judges were presented with awards for their commitment to the judiciary after 24 years of service. Recipients of the awards included Allen County Judge Craig J. Bobay, Elkhart County Judge David C. Bonfiglio, Vanderburgh County Magistrate Judge Jill R. Marcrum and Senior Judge G. Michael Witte.
