Wednesday, April 17, 2013 • Posted April 20, 2013

Mason County Judge Jerry Bearden has been honored by the Texas Judicial Academy for going the extra mile to be prepared to handle his duties as county judge.

Judge Bearden was inducted as a Fellow in the Texas Judicial Academy March 21, 2013, at a reception in Lubbock, Overton Hotel, during the 2013 Spring Judicial Education Session.

The Academy, a partnership between the Texas Tech University School of Law and the Texas Association of Counties, names as Fellows each year those judges who attain significant judicial education above that required by state law.

The educational program of the Texas Judicial Academy is overseen by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals and includes instruction by higher court judges, law school faculty as well as representatives of the Texas Probate College and the National Judicial College.
