Attorney John Cannon took the gavel Thursday as the incoming president of the Memphis Bar Association at Thursday’s MBA annual meeting at The Racquet Club.

Cannon succeeds outgoing president Ricky E. Wilkins.

Past MBA president David M. Cook, shareholder and president of the Hardison Law Firm PC, was honored with the Jerome Turner Lawyer’s Lawyer Award, the latest in a long line of accolades over the years for Cook.

Cook said the award was a tribute to the late Lee A. Hardison Jr., the founder of the law firm and a mentor to Cook during the first seven years he practiced law.

Craig C. Conley, a shareholder in Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz PC, won the Sam A. Myar Jr. Award, which goes annually to a young attorney.

Federal bankruptcy judge Jennie D. Latta received the W.J. Michael Cody Pro Bono Attorney of the Year Award presented by Memphis Area Legal Services.

Attorney Beth Brooks received the Community Legal Center Award.
