Sheriff Scott receives Liberty Bell Award
Sheriff Mike Scott is the 2011 recipient of the Liberty Bell Award, the highest award bestowed by the Lee County Bar Association. The Liberty Bell Award recognizes an outstanding citizen who has made a selfless contribution to the community that strengthens the effectiveness of the American system of justice.
The categories of community service considered include activities that (1) promote a better understanding of our form of government, especially the Bill of Rights; (2) encourage greater respect for the law and the courts; (3) stimulate a deeper sense of individual responsibility; (4) contribute to the effective functioning of our institutes of government; and (5) instill a better understanding and appreciation of the rule of law.
Scott said, “I am humbled by the formal recognition from such an esteemed organization as the Lee County Bar Association. I proudly accept this award and will continue to stay focused on the mission of public safety.”
Scott will be presented with the award at the Law Week Awards Luncheon on Friday, April 29, at Royal Palm Yacht Club in Fort Myers. The annual event begins at 11:30 a.m. and is open to the public.
