“Anita has been one of the driving forces behind legal education in Virginia,” said Davison M. Douglas when nominating Anita Poston for the William R. Rakes Leadership in Education Award by the Virginia State Bar’s Education Section. Along with her legal practice, Anita is known for her leadership of local and state educational institutions and for her devotion to many civic and legal organizations. She has served as a member of the Virginia Board of Bar Examiners since 1990 and as President of the Board since 2019.
The Rakes award recognizes an individual who has demonstrated exceptional leadership in improving legal education, and in advancing relationships and professionalism among members of the academy, the bench, and the bar in Virginia. The award will be presented at the VSB’s annual meeting in June.
