Larry J. Dagenhart, who serves of counsel with McGuireWoods in Charlotte, is the 2012 recipient of the North Carolina Bar Association’s Dr. I. Beverly Lake Public Service Award.
The award was presented on Friday, June 22, at the 2012 NCBA Annual Meeting in Wilmington.
Among the many beneficiaries of Dagenhart’s lifelong devotion to public service are the United Arts Fund, United Way, Foundation for the Carolinas, Charlotte World Affairs Council, Charlotte City Club, Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, North Carolina Citizens for Business and Industry, Ben Craig Incubator Center, Kate B. Reynolds Health Care Trust, Council for Children’s Rights, Charlotte Country Day School, Davidson College Alumni Association, Davidson College Board of Trustees, UNC-Wilmington Board of Trustees and St. Mark’s Lutheran Church.

Creation of the Lake Service Award, which annually recognizes an outstanding lawyer in North Carolina who has performed exemplary public service in his or her community, accompanied the establishment of the I. Beverly Lake Sr. Justice Fund in 2004. The voluntary service rendered by the recipient of the Lake Public Service Award may have occurred with a single non-profit organization or with a number of groups in the community as well as through public service in elective or appointive office.
