Bowie County Judge Sterling Lacy has again been honored by the Texas Judicial Academy for going the extra mile in preparation for his duties as County Judge. Approximately two in five county judges completed the continuing education requirements for eligibility.
Judge Lacy was inducted as a Fellow in the Texas Judicial Academy on November 19, 2014, at a luncheon in Austin during the 2014 Fall Judicial Education Session.
The Academy, a partnership between the Texas Tech University School of Law and the Texas Association of Counties, names as Fellows each year those judges who attain significant judicial education above that required by state law.
The educational program of the Texas Judicial Academy is overseen by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals and includes instruction by higher court judges, law school faculty as well as representatives of the Texas Probate College and the National Judicial College.
