The HCBA named Dr. Erin Kimmerle, a forensic anthropologist from the University of South Florida, as its 2017 Liberty Bell Award winner at the HCBA's annual Law Day Luncheon on May 11.
The award "recognizes an outstanding non-lawyer citizen whose community service strengthens the effectiveness of the American system under the law." The HCBA has presented the Liberty Bell Award annually since 1964.
Kimmerle, 44, was recognized for her work leading a team of researchers in 2012 that helped unearth remains from the Dozier School for Boys in Florida's Panhandle and return them to their families.
