HOWLAND -- Don't stop studying the world once you get out of the classroom, was the message Professor J. Dean Carro gave students attending the Trumbull County Bar Association Law Day luncheon.

Carro, who teaches criminal procedure at the University of Akron School of Law, encouraged the students to be involved in society.

"You need to read the newspaper, listen to the news, talk to people and question everything," Carro said during Tuesday's lunch at Leo's Restaurant. "You need to know what's happening and be involved in society. Government works for us."

Carro stressed that, if the power of the people is going to continue to work, everyone needs to be active in their communities.

More than 20 high school students attended the lunch with their mentors. Local judges and attorneys served as the mentors. The students spent the morning with the mentors at their jobs.

Kristin Shackelford of LaBrae spent the day with Judge Thomas L. Old of Newton Falls Municipal Court. Shackelford said the experience was enjoyable and allowed her to learn about the court system firsthand.

Awards

During the lunch, awards were given to attorneys who have done pro bono (free) work during the year. The Pro Bono attorney of the year was Marc D. Lambert. Others receiving awards were Roger Bauer, A. Joseph Fritz, Marlene Jones-Gibbs, Brendan J. Keating, Michael A. Ognibene, Anthony G. Rossi III, Michael Scala, Charles I. Swartz and Nancy E. Yakubek.

Students who took part in a drawing and essay contest were also given awards. The artwork from the contests will be displayed at the Trumbull Art Gallery, 198 E. Market Street, Warren, through June 11.
