In honor of her outstanding service to the Houston Bar Association (HBA), Jackson Walker partner Jamila Brinson has been named a recipient of this year’s President’s Award for her work as co-chair of the AIDS Outreach Committee. Jamila will receive the award at the HBA’s Annual Dinner on May 17, 2018, at River Oaks Country Club.
The AIDS Outreach Committee provides holiday gifts for families affected by HIV/AIDS by matching donor firms and corporations with families. During the HBA AIDS Outreach Holiday Adopt-a-Family Project, the committee secured 86 adopters to donate gifts to more than 300 recipients.
“To be recognized with a President’s Award for Outstanding Service to the Houston Bar Association is a great honor,” Jamila said. “My commitment to helping the community is not based on any desire to win an award, but to make a difference in the lives of those impacted by HIV/AIDS. I am thankful for the opportunity to assist the HBA’s AIDS Outreach Committee and to work for a law firm that is also dedicated to supporting the community.”
Established in 1870, the HBA is the fifth largest metropolitan bar association in the U.S. and has over 11,000 members committed to serving the legal profession and the community of Harris County, Texas. For more information, visit the Houston Bar Association’s website.
