The Rutherford & Cannon County Bar Association held a portrait unveiling on December 6 for long-time Rutherford County General Sessions Judge David Loughry. Judge Loughry served the county for 24 years, from 1990-2014.
Several of Judge Loughry’s colleagues attended the ceremony to share in his special moment. Judge Ben Bennett, who presided over the event, thanked Judge Loughry for his service to the county, while Attorney Steve Waldron shared personal stories from their college years. Attorney Ben Parsley recalled Judge Loughry giving him the opportunity to serve as his court officer many years ago. He credits that role with helping to launch his successful legal career.
Judge Loughry’s portrait will hang in the courtroom for Division II of the Rutherford County General Sessions Court.
