Kilpatrick Stockton LLP announced today that the Firm has been selected by the American Lung Association of North Carolina as the 2004 recipient of its “Excellence in Public Service” award.

Last week, volunteers, corporations and foundations from across the state were honored by the American Lung Association of North Carolina for their invaluable support through time, services, and gifts. The organization specifically recognized Kilpatrick Stockton attorneys Lois Colbert, Carl Hibbert, Chris Matton, Swain Wood, and paralegal Ashley Tweed for generously sharing their time, expertise, knowledge, and skills.

”Voluntary agencies like the American Lung Association must rely on the generosity of the communities they serve to make a difference. Many times, this generosity comes in the form of shared expertise and professional counsel to the agency’s leadership,” said Deborah C. Bryan, President and CEO, American Lung Association of North Carolina. “For their extraordinary volunteerism and pro bono legal help, Kilpatrick Stockton was a natural choice for our “Excellence in Public Service” award.”

Kilpatrick Stockton Partner Lois Colbert currently serves as the organization’s Secretary/Treasurer of the Board.
