Illinoisan of the Year Announced

This year’s Illinoisan of the Year award goes to a group that helped transform Extended Media Coverage in the state’s circuit courts from an experiment to a permanent program: The Media Coordinators.

Edith Brady-Lunny, media coordinator in the 11th district, addressed the Fall 2017 Convention Sunday on behalf of the group.
