Two alumnae were recently appointed to serve on the benches of the highest courts in the state and country.
Governor Nathan Deal announced Sarah Hawkins Warren '00 will be the newest justice on the Supreme Court of Georgia.
After graduating from Westminster, Sarah earned bachelor’s degrees in public policy and Spanish from Duke University and a law degree from the Duke University School of Law. Sarah currently serves as the solicitor general in the Office of the Georgia Attorney General. She previously worked as the deputy solicitor general and as special counsel for water litigation in the Georgia Attorney General’s Office.
Sarah is one of the youngest justices to be appointed to the Supreme Court of Georgia. She will fill the vacancy created by the recent confirmation of Britt Cagle Grant '96 to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit.
In late July, the U.S. Senate confirmed Britt to the 11th Circuit. Prior to her time on the Supreme Court of Georgia, Britt was the solicitor general of Georgia. She earned bachelor's degrees in English and politics from Wake Forest University and a law degree from Stanford Law School.
