The Hawaii State Judiciary thanked its Oahu-island volunteers at its annual recognition ceremony held September 28 in the Hawaii Supreme Court courtroom.
Of the 75 volunteers who attended the ceremony, three were recognized for having donated over 1,000 hours in the past year.
Chief Justice Mark Recktenwald said he appreciated all of the Judiciary’s volunteers. “You have advanced the cause of justice in our community by enabling us to serve the public more effectively,” he said.
During the past fiscal year, 941 Oahu volunteers donated approximately 50,000 hours working in a variety of positions such as case aids, bailiffs, docents, and law clerks. The estimated value of the hours contributed by the volunteers amounts to $358,875 and is based on the minimum hourly wage set by the U.S. Department of Labor.
