2007 Press Releases

CONTACT PERSON: VALERIE WILLARD

PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICER

 MAY 30, 2007

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Suzanne H. Stinson, Court Administrator for the 26th Judicial District Court for Bossier and Webster Parishes, recently became a Fellow of the Institute for Court Management (ICM), having successfully completed the rigorous requirements of ICM’s Court Executive Development Program (CEDP). Stinson and 17 other court professionals from around the United States and Trinidad and Tobago took part in graduation ceremonies conducted at the Supreme Court of the United States in Washington, D.C. The Honorable John G. Roberts, Jr., Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, welcomed the graduates and offered laudatory remarks.


The Court Executive Development Program is the only program of its kind in the United States. This professional certification program was established more than 30 years ago, in part by U.S. Chief Justice Warren E. Burger in his call for improving the management of state court administration. The intensive four-phase educational program better prepares court professionals for management and leadership positions.


Stinson’s attendance of the final phase of the program in Washington, D.C. was supported by a scholarship awarded by the State Justice Institute (SJI), a non-profit organization established by Federal law to award grants to improve the quality of justice in State courts nationwide, facilitate better coordination between State and Federal courts, and foster innovative, efficient solutions to common problems faced by all courts. More information about the Institute is available on the SJI website (http://www.statejustice.org).
