Walker Receives ‘Distinguished Service Award’ from BLAC
Attorney Bernice L. Walker was presented with the Distinguished Service Award from the Black
Lawyers Association of Cincinnati (BLAC) during its 13th Annual Scholarship and Awards Banquet
on April 9. Approximately 350 people attended the black-tie affair. Walker received the award for her
invaluable service to BLAC, the legal community, and Greater Cincinnati. Her service to BLAC began
when she was a law student and has continued throughout her career. In addition to being president
of BLAC from 1999 until 2001, she has also served on various committees and held other leadership
roles in the organization. At the banquet, Walker was presented with a proclamation signed by Mayor
Charlie Luken indicating that April 9, 2005 was “Bernice L. Walker Day” in the City of Cincinnati.
Attendees commented that Walker’s acceptance remarks, which included the inspirational Paradoxical
Commandments by Dr. Kent M. Keith, were very touching.
