LCBA member Sam Jones, of Shuttleworth & Ingersoll law firm, received the annual Citizenship Award at the LCBA's Bench Bar Gala on Thursday, January 19, 2023. LCBA member Darin Luneckas presented the award to Jones. Luneckas cited Jones for his extensive board service, including serving as President of the Board for the Willis Dady Emergency Shelter in Cedar Rapids. Accompanying Jones for the award presentation were his wife Diana, children Amelia and Bob, and close friend Sean Harschnek.
The Citizenship Award is presented to one LCBA member annually based on the following factors: 1. Active participation in civic organizations that provide services to others in the community, state and/or country (not necessarily just to other lawyers);
2. Active participation in activities designed to further the interests of the Iowa bar (whether at the local, regional or state level);
3. Demonstrates strength of character and ability to motivate others to action to benefit the community, state and/or country; and
4. Supports, promotes and “goes above and beyond” to further the interest of others in the local community.
