Lauren Lemmon named Rotarian of the Year for 2007
"I am honored to receive this award. However, nothing is accomplished in our club without the help and support of members who are a great team of leaders in the community. Our slogan is 'service above self,' and we like to add 'work hard while having a good time'. The rotary club could not accomplish what we do for the St. Charles Parish community without a group of selfless and hard working individuals," said Lauren.
Lauren was raised in St. Charles Parish. She graduated from Spring Hill College in 1985, where she earned a bachelor of science degree in psychology with a minor in philosophy and was captain of the tennis team. Recognizing that a law degree with a background in psychology and philosophy would enable her to better serve the community, Lauren attended Loyola Law School in New Orleans, graduating in 1990. While in law school, she was a member of the Loyola Law Clinic, where she was a volunteer student practitioner working with a supervising attorney to provide legal services to the indigent. Her main focus with the clinic was on children and the elderly in need of legal representation.
Lauren practices law in Hahnville with her brothers, Andrew and Jake, at the Lemmon Law Firm. Her commitment to service of the community is illustrated in her law practice. She has a general private practice, where her primary focus is family law and criminal law. She is a public defender for St. Charles Parish, with a focus on juvenile criminal offenders.
Lauren is a third generation lawyer in the Vial - Lemmon families. The families were recently recognized as a multi-generational legal family in an article in the Louisiana Bar Journal.
In addition to the rotary club, Lauren is an active member of Hahnville High School's School to Work Program, American Bar Association, Louisiana State Bar Association, New Orleans Bar Association, St. Charles Parish Bar Association, Spring Hill College National Alumni Association Board, Louisiana Bar Foundation, United Way St Charles Board Member and Loyola Law School Visiting Committee. She also coaches basketball for the St. Charles Parish recreation department and has taught religion with Holy Family Catholic Churchís religious education program.
Lauren's proudest accomplishments are her two children. Patrick is ten years old and in fifth grade at Lakewood Elementary. Mary Elise is nine years old and entering fourth grade at Lakewood Elementary.
