The Hon­or­able Jim­mie Edwards, who for a num­ber of years led Casey’s Juve­nile Deten­tion Alter­na­tives Ini­tia­tive reform in the city of St. Louis, Mo., has been select­ed to receive the 2013 William H. Rehn­quist Award for Judi­cial Excel­lence from the Nation­al Cen­ter for State Courts. Edwards is the first Mis­souri judge to receive the Rehn­quist Award, one of the nation’s high­est judi­cial hon­ors. The award will be pre­sent­ed by Chief Jus­tice of the Unit­ed States John G. Roberts dur­ing a cer­e­mo­ny at the U.S. Supreme Court in Wash­ing­ton, D.C. on Nov. 21. Pre­sent­ed annu­al­ly, the pres­ti­gious award hon­ors state court judges who are tak­ing bold steps to address issues in their com­mu­ni­ties, and who demon­strate out­stand­ing qual­i­ties of judi­cial excellence.
