Melissa Byers, executive director of the St. Petersburg Bar Association, is the latest recipient of the Marshall R. Cassedy, Sr., Award.

In making the announcement in a pre-recorded address to the 2020 Annual Convention, outgoing President John Stewart called Byers a “creative and strategic thinker and an excellent communicator” who is “deeply committed to improving the mental health and wellness of Florida lawyers.”

Established in 2012, the award for extraordinary service to The Florida Bar or a local bar, honors the legacy of a former Florida Bar executive director who served from 1961-1980, and who passed away in 2011.
