On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to attorney Bethany Sauls Magnus of Whelchel Dunlap Jarrard & Walker LLP on receiving the 2018 Young Woman of the Year award, presented by the Gainesville Jaycees. She was honored along with Young Man of the Year recipient Drew Echols.

Ms. Magnus is a graduate of the State Bar of Georgia Young Lawyers Division Leadership Academy and is well deserving of this recognition. Among her many contributions to community service and leadership in Gainesville and Hall County, she is a sustaining member of the Gainesville-Hall County Junior League and serves on the boards of the United Way of Hall County, the Georgia Mountain Food Bank and the North Georgia Community Foundation, among other civic and church activities.

We salute our colleague Bethany Magnus on receiving this prestigious honor and add our appreciation for her many contributions to public and professional service.

Brian D. “Buck” Rogers

President, State Bar of Georgia, Atlanta
