Debra Dawkins had her share of days in magistrate’s court.
For her unending work and dedication to the job as magistrate judge, Dawkins had a special day.
Lancaster County recently honored Dawkins for more than 30 years of work with the magistrate’s office.
Since 1999, she has served as a county magistrate, the first black to hold the post here.
A proclamation honoring Dawkins noted she had a “sense of fairness and justice, and worked tirelessly to improve the judicial system.”
