Hall County Superior Court Judge Kathlene Gosselin was awarded last week for her leadership and service benefiting judges statewide and the reputation of the justice system.

Gosselin was presented the Emory Findley Award on Jan. 24 at the Council of Superior Court Judges’ winter conference in Athens.

The award is given annually and is named for a Superior Court judge who served 1977-1995 in the Atlanta Judicial Circuit and who transformed the council from a social organization into a group aimed at improving operations in courts, according to a news release from Hall County.

Gosselin served as president of the council 2010-2011 and, according to the news release, successfully led the council through tough economic times and helped to lead the creation and development of accountability courts throughout the state, including implementation of a mental health court in Hall.
