The citizen-lawyer from Roanoke

I was delighted to read this morning that Hampden-Sydney College has selected Mike Pace, a former president of The Virginia Bar Association, to receive the Patrick Henry Award, given by the Wilson Center for Leadership in the Public Interest. Only a handful of other Virginia lawyers have received this award, including William T. Wilson of Covington, Julious Smith of the Williams Mullen firm, Judge Jere M.H. Willis, Jr. of Fredericksburg, Judge Joseph A. Leafe of Norfolk, and former U.S. Senators Spong and Trible.

I am a big fan of Mike Pace.
