Prather, a longtime supporter of the F. Malcolm Cunningham, Sr. Bar Association and their mission, received the award at the Kravis Center on February 28.

The prestigious title of "Member of the Year" is reserved for members who demonstrate exceptional mentorship to young attorneys, and contribute both significant time and resources to the organization’s efforts. David C. Prather was this year’s award recipient as a result of attending all executive committee meetings and having served as the board's Advisor for the last four years.
