Tuesday, October 7, 2014
HOUSTON, TX - October 4, 2014 – NALS... the association for legal professionals today named Tara Hughes, PP-SC, ACP, paralegal of the Phoenix, Arizona law office of Jennings, Strouss, & Salmon, PLC, as the winner of its prestigious 57-year-old Award of Excellence recognition program. The NALS Award of Excellence Program began in 1957 and was then called the Legal Secretary of the Year. The name has since changed, but the high standards of excellence have not. The AOE is the highest award that can be given from NALS.
Candidates were nominated by their peers for this prestigious award. Each participating candidate was required to submit an extensive personal data form listing experiences, qualifications and accomplishments. The field of candidates was narrowed to three finalists, who were then required to participate in personal interviews during NALS 63rd Annual Education Conference and National Forum, held in Houston, Texas, this past week. The finalists, Doris T. Compton, PP, PLS-SC (AR) and Nancy Gates, PP, PLS (MS), were recognized and the 2014 Award of Excellence recipient, Tara Hughes, PP-SC, ACP (AZ), was announced during the Recognition Awards Luncheon on Saturday, October 4, 2014.
Tara’s passion for NALS has grown since she joined as a member in 2005. In fact, “fun” is her middle name. Tara gets great joy from participating in NALS and time spent with her NALS Pals. Tara enjoys traveling, scrapbooking, and spending time with family and friends, near and far. Please join us in congratulating Tara on this great accomplishment!
