Behm Leads Portrait Unveiling Ceremony Honoring Judge Cissy Daughtrey

June 3, 2019

On May 31, lawyers and judges from across the state gathered at the Tennessee Supreme Court to honor the accomplishments of the Honorable Martha Craig "Cissy" Daughtrey, Senior United States Circuit Judge for the United States Court of Appeals, Sixth Circuit.  In recognition of Judge Daugherty's many accomplishments, her portrait was unveiled and will hang at the Tennessee Supreme Court Building--making her the first woman to be so honored. Judge Daughtrey also holds the distinction of being the first woman Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee, the first tenure-track female faculty member at Vanderbilt University School of Law, the first woman to serve as judge for a court of record in the state, and the first woman to be named a Justice on the Tennessee Supreme Court.

DPBC's Margaret L. Behm, who helped spearhead the effort to honor Judge Daughtrey, served as host for the ceremony, which included remarks from Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Connie Clark as well as current Chief Justice of the Tennessee Supreme Court Jeff Bivins.
